  • What more it can attract in this park is the history that surrounds it, the history of Calixto and Melibea written by Fernando de Rojas, and the bronze of the famous Celestine estutua. It offers beautiful views of the Cathedral, the river Tormes, the murulla, the Arch of the entrance and a pretty well. Part has lots of vegetation, trees, fruit trees, vines, Brunettes and pasonarias... There is a tradition that if upon entering this accompanied by your beloved garden and you don't feel the desire to find your corner to express it never were in love,...

  • I have visited many times Salamanca and always go to the Orchard by the views of the sunset. But this time I was disappointed because I went on the trip with my dog and had to stay outside because it can not be entered with dogs.

  • Free monument, offers beautiful views of the city that is worth appreciating. Very well kept, the walls surrounding it and spectacular views.

  • Very lovely garden, flowers and plants and a view of the river. Make it a passage to something else like the cathedral or from the Roman bridge to San Esteban. Not really a place to go out of your way to visit, if your are turisting.
  • Popular sight-view place to spend the rest of the evening after everything else have closed, if not ready to crash the bed yet.
  • It's breathtaking. Pretty high so it has a very good view. Lots of trees that make the place very romantic. You can see the cathedral from there and it adds a little gothic sentiment to the scene. Very quite also you would barely hear anything. During the night, with all the lights and the trees, it makes a good place for bringing someone you love or just stay there for a while for some relaxation. Definitely must go to place on Salamanca.
  • Perfect view point (the best in the town to watch the sunset), beautiful birds, lizzards, and trees. If smoking in this beautiful place were prohibited that would be great!
  • Fantastic garden to sit, relax, and take a break from walking and climbing cathedrals in Salamanca. Really enjoyed the view from the back overlooking the street. Check it out!
