The Malecón is a popular tourist attraction in Santo Domingo, the capital city of the Dominican Republic. Located along the Caribbean Sea, the Malecón is a long boulevard that stretches for several miles along the coast of the city.

In addition to the sculptures, the Malecón is also home to several notable landmarks, including the Faro a Colón (Columbus Lighthouse), the largest monument in the Americas.
