  • Quiet, Super place to stroll with dogs, children, or even just to think, and enjoy the view

  • Castrelos Park, finca of the Marquise or Park of the marqueses de Quiñones de León is a wonderful place to relax in a natural environment. By bottom is a children's playground, a circuit of 1 km or 1.2 kms as if you are surrounded the playground or not that can be used both for walks as to make running exercise. It is one of the points of meeting par excellence for runners in Vigo and usually same people both day and night because of this (night is lit with streetlights). Access is completely free and open. Also we can see a lovely walk with several bridges, ideal for romantic walks where you can see various types of birds such as swans in another area. It is a chosen area primarily for photographs for weddings, communions... by how beautiful that is there. At night there are areas where there is sufficient light but well... the access to this area is also completely free and open. Up slope of castrelos, on the road, at the top, is the Manor House of the Marquis of Quiñones de León. It is also a very choice site for weddings, christenings and communions. A few years ago the Manor had been enabled as a Museum, where it showed how vivian marquises in the time... now I don't know which function you are giving. The entrance to this area (the area of the gardens of the Manor House) is free but with restricted schedules. In terms of the area of the Manor building some time not going so I do not know very well if you have times of entry, if we had to pay entry... or what you are doing currently there. No doubt a site very nice to walk around and breathe fresh air.

  • Castrelos can be divided into three sectors: the Museum with its area of French garden, ponds and eucalyptus trees, outdoor theatre, where you could enjoy in the festivities of Vigo's classical theatre, ballet, opera and concerts, most of the time from the press box (sitting on the stones, covered with newspapers, hence his nickname) which was then losing hook given the avalanche of bands , that dragged so much youth, without remembering the of the "middle ages", and the third sector is dedicated to children aged 0 to 90 or more to play, walk, run, etc. The range is wide. Walkers can go along parallel to the river Lagares. What's going on?. That is very extensive Park, so it is difficult to maintain. But ´animo and get to know Castrelos.

  • Best park in Vigo. Specially the Quiñones de León part in the top of the hill, it's a famous place to chill for both runners, couples, children and old people alike.
  • This is one of the hidden wonders of Vigo. The old Galician-style palace of Pazo de Castrelos takes us back to an almost lost period of past glories, although the Galician nobility as a group had certainly not much to boast about in the last few centuries. But its beautiful and well-taken care of English-style gardens are worth a relaxed stroll, taking some time to drink from carved-stone fountains below the shields on display that remind us of important family names. Then, you might visit the Archeological Museum and the main building, another outstanding picture gallery itself. And of course, the rest of the public park of Castrelos, where hundreds of "vigueses" go for a quiet walk in the forest full of "camelia japonica", some of the oldest eucaliptus in Galicia and even araucarias from South America.
  • Nice place for walking jogging.... families, kids, elderly and young people. The museum deserves a visit. Amazing gardens.
  • It's a decent park close to center. Use blue trail to access it. Don't forget to visit French gardens in it.
  • Un espácio muy logrado. Un clásico a conocer de la zona !
