Devesa Park in Girona is the largest one in Catalonia, and the real green lung of the city. It occupies 40 hectares and you'll find inside 2500 platanaceae trees, most planted in the mid-nineteenth century, a time when this area, situated among the rivers Ter, Onyar and Güell, was remodeled as a park. Of the 40 ha, 9 consist of avenues covered by the shade of these trees that have grown in height reaching in some cases 60 meters.

This is the preferred ride of Girona people, a landscape that is different in every season. Part of the park is composed specifically by the Devesa Gardens, occupied by plant species with a special scientific interest, so that it can be considered almost as botanical gardens. In this area we find also the green collar ducks in freedom.
