  • Beautiful place. Nice for a drink, a bite to eat and just enjoy some people watching with folks crossing the bridge.  more »
  • Nobody goes there just for the view, but in passing, it is worth registering, is the most famous view of Curacao and close most shops, restaurants and all the movement of tourists.
