Want to relax, ant to play chess, want to enjoy an ice cream, want to learn about the history of the city. Well it is all here in this one place. The sculptor that made the sculpture of Bolivar has his ashes placed at the top of the sculpture.

This is one of the nicest (although v touristy) and picturesque towns I saw in Colombia. It's easily walkable and on every corner there's a surprise. I wish I had had more time to spend here.

Ever since 1889 this site has been the center of Armenia. Few historic buildings survived the 1999 earthquake. As a result the square is surrounded by modern buildings such as a government highrise and a cathedral. A statue of Bolivar and a modern sculpture, some green and tall trees provide a provincial capital ambiance. After offices close activity on the square dies down rather early and shifts towards the north part of the city where there is also more security. Carrera 14, for a significant part a pedestrian zone, links the square with the north. Overall not a bad place with a pleasant ambiance especially during the day.

I felt like I was back in time as I walked around. I learned about Bolivar, I ate, and I viewed the tchotchkes from dozens of vendors, inside and out. Didn't buy much, but that is not the point. Oh and I practiced my Espanol!

The downtown area of Armenia is a very enjoyable and thriving area. The lower section is pedestrian only and quite nice, with good restaurants and shopping. Near the lower end of the area is the plaza with a wide clean area and a beautiful church. I recommend spending a couple hours at least walking around.
