A beautiful park representative of the very special vegetation of the area.

This is definately a must do when you are in San Gil. It's a small but beautiful park representative of the very special vegetation of the area.

For a nice afternoon in the park, Gallineral will be a nice program. Located in the City of San Gil, this is a small park but gives you several scenic opportunities for some nice pictures.

The parc used to be indeed a small piece of jungle at the doors of the chaotic San Gil. Some trees are still beautiful. However, mismanagement of the direction of the parc destroyed it: they put electric cables in the trees for a night show, music everywhere, a swimming pool that does not belong to such a place (it was...
