The photo says it all. Near the train station. Ok view, not too much to see. Nice to look at if you are nearby but not worth making a separate trip.

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.
