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!

Park is very beautiful and peaceful. Very nice place to have a rest and amazing view of the old town. Make sure not to miss it when you visit Santiago.

Well maintained park. Nice place for peaceful stroll. Many old mature trees. Big enough for a jog. Lovely to just sit and listen, look or read.

I really liked this park. The gardens were beautiful as were the views of the city. The park was very easy to navigate and had so many benches. Here is my advice: Grab an ice cream and find a seat.

Lovely park with some height enables nice views from under shady trees. We were confused by the number of people of all ages staring at their phones until we worked out this a pokemon hotspot.

Pleasant park to walk around and backs on to the old city, so lively in the evenings. Some shady spots on a hot day and great view of the old city on one side.
