  • The garden is not that impressive, as there are hundreds in each city. What makes it special is the love story behind it. Calisto y Melibea is a love story from one of the most famous books written in...  more »

  • Beautiful garden in the middle of the city, perfect for couples. And you should definitely read something about the story which lies behind the garden.
  • . Bring your loved one and a padlock A charming renaissance garden with shady areas for the summer. Open from 10 am until sunset - don't get locked inside! The young (and not-so-young, I guess) have taken up the Italian habit of locking a padlock to a wrought-iron well in the gardens, to signify their everlasting love. It's a small garden, with literary overtones - a statue of la Celestina is just by the entrance. It can get crowded. You might like to try instead the Park of the Jesuits: Parque-Huerta de los Jesuitas - a little further away, much larger, less frequented, and with benches to sit and eat your sandwiches for a change. A 10 minute walk away. Well, perhaps 15! But worth it. .
  • Beautiful place and a nice sightseeing. Watch out of your child when you are next the wall.
  • Very recommended to the people who love Celestina! There are so beautiful the courtyard!
  • I asked my wife to marry me in this beautiful park.
