Fodor's Review

Plaza de Humacao, downtown's broad square, is anchored by Catedral Dulce Nombre de Jesús (Sweet Name of Jesus Cathedral), which dates from 1869. It has a castlelike facade, and even when its grille door is locked, you can peek through to see the sleek altar, polished floors, and stained-glass windows dominated by blues. Across the plaza, four fountains splash under the shade of old trees. People pass through feeding the pigeons, children race down the promenade, and retirees

congregate on benches to chat. Look for the little monument with the globe on top; it's a tribute to city sons who died in wars.
