  • Ideal place to relax from the last stage of the Camino and to contemplate unbeatable views of the cathedral as well as spectacular plant species, the eucalyptus that has a bench around it is impressive.

  • Alameda Park connects the old town with the new city. Near the entrance is a statue of two Marias who appeared in the park in fancy clothes as if shouting freedom during the Franco dictatorship. There was a puppet show nearby for children. It is a place of the citizens' relaxation. In the evening, you can see the old town from this park and see the cathedral shining in the sunset. It's a great spot.

  • Great park. Huge gum trees. And a great view of the cathedral as the sun sets. It is a great oasis in a bustling city  more »

  • Home of a real family friendly fun fair for Ascension Weekend every year in Santiago. Lovely to see families out and about late at night sharing space with teens and other gangs of youths. All behaving themselves, having a bit of fun and food n drink. No rivers of puke or mountains of rubbish and it was 3am. Great weekend
  • This is a large leafy space on the edge of the old city. Lots of shady trees with good seating throughout. There was even a couple of very large old eucalyptus trees providing some evergreen contrasting colour to the native species. There are also some great views back to the old city.
  • Fabulous park to relax in the shade and get away from the crowds. Don't miss the whispering arc bench where you can hear the person on the opposite side of the bench whispering :-)
  • Lovely green park 16c in Santiago De Compostela. Very welcome after the hustle of the city.some beautiful old trees,statues and ironworks, also the best view of the Cathedral from a vantage point in the park besides a massive gum tree.
  • This is a very pretty and well-maintained park not very far from the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. You will most likely run into some street artists as you will in the most touristic parts of the city. This is a very relaxing park with great views to some parts of the city including the Miradoiro da Catedral where it is possible to observe the Cathedral from a distance.
