Parque Central - City Park Cobán - Guatemala

This relatively small triangular park represents the heart of the city, where major activities take place. The park is flanked by the cathedral, Palacio de Gobernacíon and Municipalidad (Town Hall). Built on higher ground, all roads leading to the park are steeply inclined. Frequented by locals, it is a leisurely meeting point especially on Sunday mornings. In the middle of the park stands a statue of the Father of Independence, Manuel Tot. An important figure in Guatemala, he fought for the country’s liberty and was incarcerated by the government.
