Lots of the statues are in or around the central park. They varied from the serious to the comical! Take the time to seek them out.

Walking around the Old Town is like walking into a museum. Statues abound. My favorites are the "La Lechera," "El vendedor del pescar," Vendedoras las Fontan," Botero's "La Maternidad," the girl with the book located in front of Teatro Campoamor. There's so much to see.
