  • Many green drops a little, is a lovely place to stroll road, walking towards where the Columbus Monument and the tourists are less scarce light impression. It is recommended during the day so people have time.

  • Passeig de Colom is a wide and well-kept promenade road, which leads from the Columbus Monument along the harbor. The street lined with Palm trees invites for a walk. In addition to the countless Cafés and restaurants, of which you can view on the Marina, especially the monuments and sculptures have pleased us, found everywhere here. Small downside: during our visit here, it was pretty full. Those looking for peace and quiet, must find a different spot.
