  • At noon the guard of the Pantheon and Exchange is a "martial theater" with interesting choreography should also observe the fresco painted on the ceiling

  • Price 100 pesos. 2 EUR/2.5 USD open until 5 pm. Interesting and complete audio guide. It allows you to know and learn about Colon, his travels and period details. Charming inner courtyard where you can rest and have a drink.

  • Very patriotic tourist place, without greater interest if not going with a guide. It continues to be interesting, but in my view it, it is not of the principal of the city.
