Park · Nature / Park
Take in nature and great views of the harbor at Parque de Santa Catarina. This peaceful city park offers many benches and areas to sit back and relax, read, or simply people-watch while listening to the trickling fountains. Watch the big cruise ships pull in and out of the harbor below. For small children there is a playground located on the grounds, as well as a small lake that is home to many swans and ducks. Stroll through the aviaries and sculptures and stop by the two old machines on display--one used to crush grapes and one to steamroll roads.

  • What a lovely area! Not only is it so well kept, but it's also in a great location overlooking the marina. Plenty of bench seating, and certainly a lot of lovebirds enjoying the romantic atmosphere. There is a very nice pasture lawn for laying out and picnicking. There's also a nice pond with swans and ducks! This is such a great way to spend time away from the hustle and bustle of the main street underneath.
