  • Visit bound for those lovers of the book the Celestina. The garden itself is beautiful, quiet and also has very good views. It is located just behind the Cathedral. But its main charm is part of the history of Calixto and Melibea

  • Peaceful urban garden offering nice views of both cathedrals and the Tormes River. The legend that accompanies it makes you look at it in a special way and ask yourself if you really are on the stage of the love affairs of Calixto and Melibea. I asked the Celestina but I did not know or could not answer.
