The Isabel la Católica Park was planned in 1941 and is the largest green area in the city. Its 151,857 m² is home to different environments. Its lakes are a must-see. Flanked by a wide variety of trees, they’re home to geese, swans and wild birds.

The central space is devoted to the French-style rose garden, where the park’s renowned peacocks live. Other areas of interest are the prairie alongside Avenida de Castilla and the children’s playground.

The park houses a large array of sculptures featuring mythological motifs, historical characters and important figures from the city. The park’s furniture is noted for its stone and cast iron benches from the 1920s.
