The memorial to the unknown soldier is here, with its eternal flame and sentries. Arrive around noon, and watch the changing of the guard. Even in dead winter, there were floral bouquets there, left by wedding couples.

You will see all the naval cadets drinking and jumping in these fountains on their special day. Its quite central and almost ruined by McDonalds and Pizza restaurant alongside. As I have said before go early for the tranquility and the clean fountains!
