You might not spend long in this little garden but make an effort to find it and you will not regret doing so. Located on the edge of the historic part of the city, it is a well maintained area which offers good views and a relaxing way to spend some time away from it all. There is a lot... More

Easily accessible from the Cathedral area, a small garden area offering some peace, some shade, and some decent views.

As a previous long-term resident of Salamanca, I used to go to this garden as often as I possibly could. Any glowing review I try to give seriously cannot do this place enough justice. It is a stunning closed off garden in the city, with beautiful views of the Cathedral Vieja y Nueva in the background and a view of... More

A quiet shady garden in which to relax not far from the Plaza de Anaya. Plenty of seating. Many beautiful plants as well as panoramic views to enjoy from the balcony there.

If you haven't read CELESTINA yet, it isn't too late. One of Spain's early best-sellers comes to life in this beautiful, little garden that overlooks the River Tormes. One can just imagine Melibea and Calisto's encounter that leads to a tragic end. Read it and visit it!!!

Very quiet and enjoyable. It is like having your own private garden with great views of the river and roman bridge. Especially nice at sunset. Great place to just sit and enjoy the sunshine.

A small entrance, but not that difficult to find if you have a city map. There is a variety of flowers, trees and shrubs providing shade and tranquillity. The garden is at a much higher level than the ring road below and there are views over this and beyond.
