  • 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!
  • Beautiful secret little spot to pause, snall but not as overrun with tourist groups following a flag. Really nice in the heat of summer. Diverse fruit trees and other plants.
  • Beautiful orchard with all kinds of fruits, vegetables and kitchen herbs. It's a pity they don't have any plaques explaining the associated story.
  • Perfect view (the best in town to watch the sunset), beautiful birds, lizzards & trees. If smoking in this beautiful place was prohibited that would be great!
  • Beautiful little park. Must see in Salamanca
