  • Very nice views and interesting scenery. There is a bush labyrinth and a route of bunkers and cannons
  • A wonderful and exceptional place where you can enjoy unique views of the entire environment of the city of A Coruña. Especially the windy days of no rain can enjoy the wind in your face and the breaking of the waves on the rocks. In the distance the Tower of Hercules. You can upload by car, walking down a dark path or in bubble zipper for 3 euros from the promenade. It also boasts unique coffee shop and restaurant. The Park is green and wooded and is well taken care of. It even has some another ruin. Nothing more I can tell you it was a short visit. Bye.

  • Site beautiful and curious, since in it an old zone with military batteries. They have public toilets and there is a nice bar-restaurant with amazing views.

  • Beautiful place from which sees all of la Coruña. It has several cannons and trenches. A good place to spend an afternoon with the family or the couple. By putting a snag, the ascensor-mirador of glass is a little expensive.

  • That's great! Excellent Park with one walk more than overhand, which makes you enjoy beautiful views of Coruña. Windy! :-)
