Pretty park with wonderful sea views and lots of interesting features (a peek of Etna, fragrant roses, magnificent cypress, birdhouses, WW1 and WW2 artifacts). The plant material is lovely, but what makes this spot special is the intriguing architecture, the peaceful atmosphere and it’s FREE.

Wonderfully frivolous park laid out by an Englishwoman. Trees that will shade, structures to marvel at and entertain you, and even parrots. Super views along the coast.
