Bonaval Park

For lovers of nature and fresh air.

The full name is Santo Domingo de Bonaval Park, but locals know it simply as 'Bonaval Park'. It's a lush green space behind the Convent of Santo Domingo, hence the name, which also houses other important institutions such as the Galician Center for Contemporary Art and the Museum of the Galician People. It was designed by Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza and landscape gardener Isabel Aguirre over more than 14 square miles and was inaugurated in July 1994; since then it has become one of the favorite areas for Compostelans to stroll and enjoy the tranquility of nature. It's particularly striking to see the number of people who come here on weekends. Inside, you will also find a sculpture by Eduardo Chillida called "A Porta da música" ("the music gate"): two steel columns measuring almost 10 feet in height and weighing 17 tons.
