|The old buildings that surround these town Plazas are simply amazing!|
I had planned to surprise Bruce with a side trip to the Botanical Gardens in Caguas after we left the dermatologist's office, but the Gardens are still closed due to Covid. I had a scheduled pickup time at Sam's Club, so now we have an hour and a half to kill. What to do....
A quick consultation with Google Maps, and I was headed for the Plaza de Recreo Santiago R. Palmer, or more easily said, Palmer Plaza in Caguas. All of the municipalities have at least one central plaza, and we've never had the time to visit this one during our many trips to the mountain municipality of Caguas.
So come with me and see what we got into!
I found parking easily on the one-way street bordering the plaza. Somehow, I figured out the process... each parking space had a number. Obviously there is some way to pay for the space... The signs were all in Spanish of course, but I quickly realized that there would be a pay station nearby... I found it, and fed the machine enough to get us an hour!
We strolled slowly along with umbrellas deployed against a light rain. That did not deter the numerous pigeons, who miraculously appeared around us!
|WOW!! How cool is this???|
|What a beautiful and well-maintained space!|
|Catedral Dulce Nombre de Jesus|
|La piedra De Polanco|
|I'm sure there is some significance to this brick structure inside the tree...|
