Parc de Cervantes

Coming up roses

Parc de Cervantes

The Parc de Cervantes was one of the few green spaces opened up under Franco, in 1965. It has since become famous for its lovely rose gardens, with 10,000 bushes and over 250 varieties, plus grassy lawns, shady picnic groves and an intriguing sculpture called Dos Rombs (1977) by Andreu Alfaro, made out of aluminium bars that form rhomboids from every angle. You'll find the roses in bloom from April to November.
