A real forrest in the city. Big and olds trees arround and many corners to see. Amazing place to take a walk and go away from the city in the city. Proud of Girona

I like Parc de la Devesa very much! It's very near the Cathedral of Girona and it's very beautiful, calm and peaceful :) I recommend it for sure!

Quiet place just 5' far from the city center. If you go with kids you don't have to worry about traffic, kids could run freely. There is a little lovely garden surrounded by water, with an old house and a greenhouse.

Through innocuous gates unfolds a breathtaking, spic and span clean European park, old school. The sections with beautifully constructed mini gardens flow together serenely. A moment of beauty and peace in a lovely city.

This is not a typical park. There are lots of very tall trees which are useful in the summer time as they block out the sun. However, it is a very dry area which has several dusty tracks used by cars, vans etc. You will not find many flowers or plants here. There is a swimming pool, three tennis courts... More

A nice, quiet area near the center of town and the bridges to the jewish Quarter, but not much else is here. I was disappointed.

We went to the large Saturday market in the park, yesterday. My husband's backpack was unzippered and his wallet stolen very skillfully. It was likely an older man with a shopping bag who innocently(we thought) bumped into him. We'd barely been there five minutes. It ruined our day and our memory of Gerona, an otherwise fascinating town.

We visited Parc de la Devesa for the Saturday morning street market, which is huge and well worth a visit. However... don't enter the park to get to the market, walk around the outside as there is a stream surrounding much of the park which pretty much traps you in. The park itself is in need of a bit of... More
