This square is one of the most beautiful squares in Mar Del Plata. The major problem it has is that during the summer it is being used as a place of music recitals that leaves it very dirty.

Since it is not a squared square - has different shaped blocks - Plaza Colon offers different views of the Hotel/Casino, of the beach and other surrounding buildings. Walk by the main streets that croos the square.
