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 country without an army. The tower is closed to the public. The old brick building next to the Fortín is the Palacio Municipal (Town Hall).
