  • Beautiful memorial about the battles of the Falklands in the first world war. Beautiful sculptures in a stone Obelisk. It's not so close to the city centre but worth the visit, walking.

  • The memorial commemorates the 1914 Battle of the Falklands. It is a pleasant walk from the town centre and offers nice views.
