It is a very informative place, nice picnic area; however the restrooms are very lacking. It is worth the trip to the area, one must sure to plan the bathroom breaks in advance but the history is spectacular

Came here as part of a tour. Quite quiet when we got there. Simple but very interesting and sad part of Antigua's history. Small donation requested.
