The Plaza or "City Square" was the life of any city in the early founding days. All activity and construction was around it, and until the advent of the shopping malls, the main city stores were all around it. The Mayagüez one displays an array of very interesting XIX century bronze statues as well as a statue of Christopher Columbus (Colón in Spanish) as its centerpiece, surrounded by a fountain. The cathedral is in one extreme and the City Hall in the other, both pretty interesting buildings architecturally. Close by is the Teatro Yagüez, a still more interesting building, where you might be able to attend a concert or play.
During special occasions there are shows in the night, mostly on weekends. There are also kiosks selling souvenirs and typical treats, so you can get the local flavor. The square is decorated very interestingly during the holidays, with lights and sometimes light and water shows, so it is a must see.
