A must for the old town. If you plan a walk though the old town don’t miss this spot. Beautiful Santo Domingo church and the statue “Gertrudis” by Fernando Botero are the main sights. It is believed that if you touch the statues breasts you’ll have lasting love relationships... bars and cafes are great places to take some time to appreciate this spot.
Awesome to visit. Got up close with some lovely army lads. Very friendly and had good food
