Walking trails are the new ways to explore the heritage and culture of a nation and when in Guam, make sure you do not miss the Hagåtña Heritage Walking Trail. Hagåtña is filled with remnants of the island’s vibrant 4,000-year history – from the ancient Chamorro Latte period to the Spanish era and periods of war and occupation. This walking trail connects the 17 historical sites of Guam and is a 2.5-mile trek, taking every visitor through some of Guam’s most iconic historical sites including the iconic Dulce Nombre de Maria Cathedral-Basilica, the great Cathedral.
A few other iconic sites on the Hagåtña Heritage Walking Trail include Plaza de España, which houses a few historic sites like the Azotea, the last remaining structural element of the Governor’s Palace; the Almacen Arches, Guam’s signature triple arches that were once the entrance of the royal warehouse built in 1736; and the Chocolate House, the small round building that was used by both the Spanish and American administrations. Other places of interest on the trail include the San Antonio Bridge, and statue of Sirena, Guam’s legendary mermaid.
