Below the Tivolí quarter, this narrow park embellishes a little-visited dockside promenade that opened in 1840 and was redesigned in 1893. At the north end you'll see the old clock tower , aduana (customs house) and cigar factory. A curious mix of smart architecture and port-side sketchiness, its fresh(er) sea air makes it good for a stroll.

To tie in with the 2015 quincentennial, plans are afoot to improve the harbor area with an elegant ‘Malecón’ beautified with palm trees, restaurants, a playground and a new park.
