Parque de los Fundadores

Reviewed By Mateo B - Bogota, Colombia

This is a safe and pretty park located between the city center and north area. It is just to seat and enjoy the view. There is a church called Espiritu Santo, some stores and clinics around. If you are hungry, go to Frisby that is located in front of the park at Avenida Bolivar (Bolivar Ave), nice place to eat fried chicken, milk shakes and it also sells some typical Colombian meals. After you visit this park, walk to North direction and you will find Parque de la Vida, it is another interesting place to visit closest to Parque Fundadores.

Plaza de Bolivar

Reviewed By BigDogPanama - Panama

Very average park in central part of Armenia. The area is not the best part of town and is advisable to go with friend or group. I think every town large or small has a plaza de Bolivar.

Catedral la Inmaculada Concepcion

Reviewed By Mateo B - Bogota, Colombia

It is a nice church that offers couple masses every day. This church is next to Plaza de Bolivar ( Bolivar Square) where around this square there are some bakery, restaurants that offers typical Colombian plates, banks, and some social life activity during night time however beware late night; I do not recommend to walk around this square late night. During day time is fine.

Parque Sucre

Reviewed By theworldisbigenough - Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Costa Rica

The center of Armenia is completely rebuild because a big earthquake in 1988 destroyed most of the city and so is the Parque Sucre. Quite modern and it marks the beginning/end of the pedestrian area. It's busy and you will see many locals having a chat or a coffee at any time of the day. Next to the Parque Sucre there is one street, also pedestrian with stairs down to the next street. Here you find a number of nice cafes with tables and chairs outside and it's a bit more quiet and a nice place for a break and a coffee.

Reviewed By Mateo B - Bogota, Colombia

This is a big and pretty church located near to the city center. It is nice to go and visit it. I recommend to visit this place during day time, it can be a little dangerous to be around this area during night time. It offers mass all day.
