Plaza de Colón

POINTS OF INTEREST

Plaza de Colón

The Americas' tallest statue of Christopher Columbus stands atop a soaring column and fountain in this bustling Old San Juan square, kitty-corner to Castillo San Cristóbal. Once called St. James Square, it was renamed in 1893 to honor the 400th anniversary of Columbus's arrival in Puerto Rico. Bronze plaques on the statue's base relate episodes in his life. Local artisans often line the plaza, so it's a good place for souvenirs. Cool off with a fresh fruit frappé or smoothie at the kiosk.
