Located on the main street, this small monument offers a good photo opportunity. Can't miss this monument if you walk around at all. Small but gives you a lasting souvenir and memory. A very special monument indeed.

Loved the turtles and signposts nearby. Great stuff about the voyage of the Beagle...what a pioneer!

Okay, it's a monument, not much to say about it, but there it is and you can pose for a photo. It's along a nice walkway.

The visit to the research center of the Darwin Foundation is totally worth it. Very illustrative, informative and educational.

Just a dirty old statue. It sure doesn't seem like anything you should go out of your way to find. Lots of bird poop

All throughout the Galapagos, you will find various statues of Charles Darwin. All make for good photo ops.

This should be a place where you must get a picture before entering the research station but really, it is so dull that you see it and go.

A bust of Charles Darwin, close to the Darwin Research Centre. One of many monuments and statues located on the islands to the great man. After all the Galápagos Islands help give rise to the theory of evolution.

This bust of Darwin is near the path to the Darwin research Station. Puerto Ayora has a lot of interesting sculptures around town; here is another. The Great Man is ultimately responsible for most of the tourists here, so grin and selfie.

When you see this, you know you are not too much further from the entrance to the Darwin Research Center. There is a chocolate shop there as well as a spa. Also there is an art gallery underneath a sculpted arch filled with aquatic-inspired art...More
