  • This Park is located in the Centre of the city and for us it was a place for a pleasant walk. It has a pond with a few ducks and several statues emphasizing Mafalda's are found. One side of the park lies a tiny tourist office where we attended a super nice guy who explained us everything great so I recommend this office to obtain information about the city.

  • This Park is in the Centre, next to the calle Uría, shopping street and close to the Teatro Campoamor. The Park is very suitable for strolling, relaxing, enjoying their ducks in the pond and various statues that exist, including Mafalda.

  • He Park of San Francisco is the lung of the city of Oviedo, in full Center of the city and in the surroundings is oxygenates with it innumerable vegetation and nature that it surrounds. The Park of San Francisco de Oviedo, is worth to enjoy it accompanied by friends or family with a stroll quiet, observing native and centennial trees that have and walk among them slowly and preferably during the day, midday or early afternoon winter and in summer at dawn or dusk, where temperatures are more pleasant. It is a very pleasant and quiet ride and where lovers photography insurance that they will draw some great pictures using the contrast of colors that has. I hope and wish you will enjoy of this nature in the heart of the magnificent city of Oviedo. Greetings to all.

  • The best and largest public park in Oviedo. It's not like the removal, but it is beautiful. It has sources, garden areas, special areas for dogs, Lake with ducks, skate tracks (where is this Mafalda) and much more. Great to spend some time relaxing walking or sitting.
