Beautiful little park to take a stroll around. Includes an old abandoned monastery, statues of interest, wonderful old stonework and a great viewing spot from where you can see the cathedral. Great for all visitors, couples/families/lads whatever.

A relaxing place to walk around, and then just sit for a while and take in the view over the rooftops of the city to the cathedral.
