Parque La Libertad

Plaza in San Gil

The tree-lined plaza of Parque La Libertad, also called Parque Principal, is San Gil's most visible landmark and the heart of its social life. The handsome 18th-century stone Catedral Santa Cruz dominates the north end of the plaza. On weekend nights the plaza is packed with multiple generations of Colombian families enjoying the festive atmosphere while street vendors hawk warm arepas.
