Every Tuesday morning the park holds an eco-friendly market with green and artisan products. Get to the highest area to find a viewpoint with a panoramic view of the southern region of the modern city and historical rooftops.
The park is a 50 minutes stroll from the city center the other Cathedral of the city. “The City of Culture” or “Gaiás” complex represents an avant-garde architectural icon. A set of large buildings that evoke the Scallop Shell of Pilgrims, as the architect Peter Eisenman first desire. The city includes libraries, cafes, museums, companies, and entrepreneurs sharing a space that seems to be built to develop creativity.
We suggest a visit to the roofs of the Old Cathedral. The best balcony in town is located 30 meters above the Obradoiro in roofs made of stones; thus you will understand the Cathedral construction over the centuries and discover some of the rituals of ancient pilgrims, along with an spectacular view.
