There’s nothing that you can see here except that what it might have been if not for this senseless war. The original Governor’s Palace was destroyed during World War II and only 3 structures left standing, this little Chocolate House, the azotea and the 3-arched gate.

The tranquility, images of the people going about their daily lives back in time all flashing through; serenity and a calmness overcomes your senses. I am amazed that the grounds are not being kept.

it won't take you much time to visit this since there are only three structures still standing (much of the palace was destroyed during the shelling of Hagatna during the retaking of Guam in WWII).

Came her just to take some HDR photo shots. It will probably take you all but 30 minutes to take pictures all over park. Walking distance from the famous Chamorro Village (food and souvenir complex).

Old architecture left from when Spain ruled Guam. Visit is free and takes only minutes to walk through. See the chocolate house and main head quarters of the Spanish headquarters.

It only takes a few minutes to stop and read the markers. There is a lot of history here and worth the stop.

My favorite experience when strolling the lawns of this historic park, is how cool Guam is away from paved streets. The large shade trees also enhance comfort. I wish all of Guam was this comfortable to walk around in.
