15 Aug Ourense, a city full of green areas

If you are visiting Ourense this summer, there is nothing better to cope with the rigors of the heat that the city supports in the summer season than to spend the afternoon in the cool of one of its parks and gardens, near the rivers that cross the city.

We start in the Miño Park, on the banks of the river that gives it its name, very rich in vegetation. In it you will also find a number of statues of the most important artists of the capital of Burgas.

The Park of Barbaña, is one of the most extensive in the city, close to the Barbaña river, where there is a playground and cafeteria.

The Park of San Lázaro in which it emphasizes a monumental baroque source, coming from the Cistercian monastery of Oseira.

The Archaeological-Natural Complex of Santomé is a native forest that impresses and counts on an archaeological deposit that agglutinates the castreña culture and Galician-Roman.

The Alameda de Ourense, of medieval origin, is a clear example of modernist architecture.

And there are two gardens that stand out: those of Father Feijoo, in which stands a statue dedicated to one of the greatest representatives of the Spanish Enlightenment, Father Jerónimo Feijoo, who was born near the capital and the Garden of Posio, An old botanical garden, from the middle of the nineteenth century, where you will find beautiful peacocks.
