Charming and magical space in the middle of the city. A real oasis and free!! If you like Gaudi or nature as art, you love this space from Plaza de Sombreros on one end to the gardens with their waving paths and multiple bridges.

The artwork is quite interesting and there is plenty of space to sit down. The park is quite small, you can walk through it in a couple of minutes. Would be good to have someone explain you a bit about the wanka culture.

We walked to the park (pretty long) and are glad we did. It was worth the visit. So much beauty produced with simple materials like mortar and river rocks. Loved the kid park section, where many children were enjoying their visit.

I've been to some of the most beautiful parks around the world, and I was amazed at the beauty and artistry of this park. In my opinion, this park is in the same league as Gaudi's Park Guell in Barcelona. While it's not as big...More

We visited this park with a tour guide which I strongly recommend. We learned that each stone, each flower, plant, and tree, and each piece of architecture have deep meaning to why it is in the park. There is so much history with every detail...More
