Archive for the ‘Pier’ Category

The Malecon 2000 is pier that was built around the year 2000. It is a long walk along the river Guayas. It is dotted with parks and amusements for the children. At the center is the Rotunda which houses the statues of Simon Bolivar and San Martin and commemorates the formation of Greater Columbia, which later split up.
We walked it at night and so were not able to enjoy the gardens as much, but we did see  and spend time at the Rotunda, before retiring for the night.

After the Cathedral we went to the lesser of the two malecons the “Malecon del Salado”. The Malecon was deserted, probably because it was the new year’s eve.  There are couple of restaurants. The parks along the Malecon are very well maintained and if one wishes to have a quite walk one can do so. A picturesque bridge over the main road predominates this malecon.
