  • Very central with beautiful flower beds and food kiosks and nearby shopping area. Bus services available, including Tourist bus. Tourist office and Police station nearby. A pleasant place just to sit and relax.
  • Beautiful views, easy to find and explore. Close to the beach and the harbour for lovely walks. Lots of cafés and bars to choose from and a great interchange for buses to the rest of the city.
  • This is noisy touristic place. There are more cafes and restaurants. Non stop is full with people. Often there are concerts and others public events. This place is good transport center. There are bus for each point of city and the more places of the island. Santa Catalina is famouse place for all tourists but you will not missed anything if you do not visit it.
  • Beautiful trees, benches. Nice cafés and restaurants with outdoor seating. Had a delicious burger in one! Handy bus station and friendly tourist information centre.
  • Well presented and pretty, public transport comes here, touristy cafes etc but would prefer the side streets for more authentic food :)
