Fodor's Review

On the north side of the Parque Central in its own little park stands a strange tower. Built as a military post in the 1870s, it never did see action and now serves as the symbol of the province, one of the few military monuments in this army-less country. The tower is closed to the public. The old brick building next to the Fortín is the Palacio Municipal (Town Hall).
