Create an itinerary including Plaza de Espana
Follow in the footsteps of Guam's colonial rulers as you stroll through Plaza de Espana, the central square and main park space of the island's capital village. The plaza marks the site of the former governor's palace, used during the Spanish occupation. The complex was mostly destroyed in 1944 during heavy shelling. Today, you can admire the few surviving buildings--including the chocolate house and the garden house--or simply enjoy the lush nature that has partly reclaimed the historic site. Consider visiting early in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid busloads of tourists who gather here during the middle of the day. For Plaza de Espana and beyond, use our Hagatna trip itinerary planner to get the most from your Hagatna vacation.
