Seminario Park and Metropolitan Cathedral (Guayaquil)

One of the most interesting spots in Guayaquil is Seminario Park, aka Bolivar Park and Iguana Park. It hosts dozens of its namesake critters as well as a turtle pond:

Also, sausage trees with their odd, inedible fruit:

Across the street is the lovely Metropolitan Cathedral with stained glass as colorful and fine as I’ve seen anywhere:
