Visit Latte Stone Park to see wonderfully well-preserved examples of the ancient structures known as “latte stones” that are unique to the Marianas Islands. Standing in the heart of Guam’s capital, Hagåtña, Latte Stone Park is fringed by trees. This tranquil spot is a must-visit place for those interested in history, as the stone columns that stand here are more than 1,000 years old. Allow enough time to visit the beautiful Dulce Nombre de Maria Agana Cathedral and Basilica too. The picturesque white building also has historic significance and is located next to the park.
Latte stones are pillars made of stone that have distinctive circular tops. Stroll among the latte stones on display in the park and imagine the days when they supported buildings constructed by early island dwellers. It is believed that the technique of building houses high on top of latte stones began well over 1,000 years ago. It remained popular until the 16th century. These particular stones are early examples. They originally stood in a different spot and were carefully transported from the southern part of the island, where they were first unearthed.
Make Latte Stone Park your starting point for exploring the rich history of Hagåtña. As well as sites like this one, featuring architecture by the island’s indigenous Chamorro people, discover local relics of the early Spanish missionaries who brought Catholicism to Guam. Visit the cathedral after you’ve been to Latte Stone Park. Wander through the green Plaza de España, which is also nearby. The first Spanish governor of the island built his home here. Though that home no longer stands, other centuries-old structures remain. Walk through the original arched gateway and visit the round Chocolate House, where the Spanish settlers drank their afternoon hot chocolate.
As Hagåtña is so compact, Latte Stone Park is within easy walking distance from most places in the town. Bring a camera when you come, so you can capture the otherworldly quality of these ancient relics.
