    Definitely a good way to end the day, is a step by his pleasant ways. And you have to make a visit to the sculpture of Mafalda!

    Essential photo with Mafalda and see the ducks. There are ice cream and sweets in Uria Street Avenue. Very clean. The charquete of ducks if that would need cleaning in my opinion.

  • Wonderful park in the middle of the city centre. A fantastic place to have a walk, workout, seat and read a book or meet friends. It even has a pond with ducks in it, and if you spend a little while there you might encounter a squirrel :)
