  • We sat in this Park a couple of times just taking in the atmosphere. Beautiful, near the church, great open place to relax with a coffee or ice cream or something. 
  • This park is located on the east end of the El Conde street. It is relatively clean and safe. Although it is very busy, it is a great place to sit down and relax.
