Lonely Planet review

Beside the Catedral Primada de América, this historic park contains several shade trees and a large statue of Admiral Columbus himself. It’s the meeting place for local residents and is alive with tourists, townsfolk, hawkers, guides, taxi drivers, shoeshine boys, tourist police and thousands of pigeons all day long. El Conde Restaurant, at the corner of Calle El Conde and Arzobispo Meriño, has seating inside and out and is the premier people-watching corner in the Zona Colonial.
