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.

In it`s six blocks real space, the expanded Plaza Colon offers some of the most characteristic photographs of Mar del Plata, specially including the Casino and the Hotel Provincial. Beware the thieves and pickpockets, and be extremely careful at night.
