  • Mythical site of the city by its architectural ensemble, Lake and cafes around. Ideal for a ride as a couple or with children. Ambient and quiet at the same time

  • Very green garden, with benches to sit after getting around the city. A water point and some statutes allow to appreciate this nature break in the city.
