We stopped in this park area to watch the Pidgeon man covered with birds while feeding many more on the ground. The park was created in the 1800s.

This is a fun stop to take photos and hang out, as long as you're OK with pigeon poop. You can buy bird food, but honestly, the birds are everywhere so it's not really needed.

You can buy little bags with corn and then feed the birds. They will land on you and fight over the food. Great fun for kids

Very small park, only offers a view on the cruise ship terminal nearby. Lots of pigeons, locals try to sell you bird food you can feed the birds. The birds sit on your head and shoulders, kids cry it out then. That’s the only attraction....More

Although it may be difficult to find public parking nearby, it is not impossible . However, in some nearby streets you can park and enjoy the ride without problems.
