Not much to see here: seating, statue and some signage about the display, making it a quick attraction to see. Market nearby on the weekends.

We were on a long walk when we came upon this little monument. It was nice, but please know that you can take in everything it has to offer in less than 10 minutes.

Nice to spend 5-10 minutes looking at the monument. Then move on. It's not too far from the Saturday street Market.

It looks like a giant bust like statue and some fancy retainer walls of the president who signed it or bought it. It's nice to look at.
