Make sure to take a hike through the park and see the lake, the rose garden and the Crystal Palace. All are spectacular.

Wonderful park that is a pleasure to wander around. There is a lovely boating lake and cafes you can sit and enjoy the view at with a cold beer. Definitely worth a visit.

It was a nice day and we spent a couple of hours strolling around the park. Quite a big area and plenty to see. A nice break away from the traffic.

You absolutely cannot swim in the lake. We were there last week and it was 103F every day. We just fell in line with the rest of the Spaniards and around 3 or 4 o'clock went back to the hotel for a nap and some A/C. It... More
