  • Not big, but very beautiful garden near by the Salamanca University, big diversity of trees and flowers
  • Great little garden hidden in a corner of the old town
  • 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.
