  • He does great things. It is a garden. But it has a lot of magic, especially if you go in the novel by Fernando de Rojas. I recommend making a rest in the garden stop to replenish forces and relax

  • A very quiet and cozy, full of colours and perfumes of flowers. Excellent to take beautiful photos of the city, with a beautiful view of the Cathedral.

  • Cool little place. A hot day is worth well with padlocks is vu. A small statue and a sentence dedicated to work are placed in a place not too at the sight. Moreover as one pretty garden either.

  • 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.
