Beautiful park. Safe. Nice change from the old section. Full of locals. The trees and flowers are stunning. Never knew eucalyptus trees grew so tall-monumental!

You can get a nice view of the city if you walk up the park. While we were there was a carnival and it was really nice to see families coming in to enjoy with their children.

A walk around Parque da Alameda offers us a view of the city on the north side of the park, and a view of the south campus of the University of Santiago de Compostela on the opposite side; this park is also good for jogging....More

A great place to watch the sunset. There is plenty of space to lay down on the ground and enjoy the last sun rays. It is a great spot to observe the south university compus. Very popular place for students.

Just a short stroll away from the city and cathedral, is this wonderful open space. With great views of the town a nice spot for a picnic.

If having a longer stay in Santiago and wanting a quiet location away from the crowds and some views of the Santiago skyline, this is a good choice.

Great place to take a rest after wandering around the city. It's between the Centro historico and the shopping area. I sat with an ice cream and watched the beautiful swans. Awesome views from the Mirador.

You can see the steeples from here...there are some interesting statues (chap who lost his hand to a angry husband and the two eccentric sisters) Nice place for a picnic....

The old town of Compostela is really quite small and accessible, so this mirador is not far away if you are at the cathedral, perhaps a slow walk of 10-15 minutes. Go for it! The park is filled with people of all ages who love...More
