Interesting facts

Description

The three parts

Alameda, meaning poplar avenue or poplar forest, is one of the oldest parks of the city. It is subdivided into three parts: the poplar avenue promenade, the oak tree forest of Santa Susana and the horseshoe-shaped promenade (Paseo da Ferradura).

View

The park itself is located in the southwest of the city. From here one can enjoy a fantastic view on the historical old town. This is one of the many reasons why the park is so popular among visitors.

Historical buildings

Wherever you look and take a glance at, you'll see flower beds, ponds, statues, artwork and wells that invite for some relaxation on a surface area encompassing 56,000 m² (67,000 square yards) in total. The historical buildings in the park are also worth a visit: the chapel of Santa Susana, the church of Pilar, the dovecote, the music pavilion or the acoustic bench.  

How to get there

By foot:

The park is located between the Campus of the university and the historical old town. Follow the Avenida de Raxoi on foot from the cathedral until you arrive at the Rúa do Pombal. Cross this road and you'll be in the middle of a green area.
