Vista Alegre Park (Finca Simeón)

This park was once a private garden, as shown by its sturdy outer wall, the statues guarding the way, its trees (palm trees, orange trees, apple trees, camellias, monkey puzzle trees, etc, some of which are more than a hundred years old), its pavilion and other shady corners in which to sit and rest.
This property, which belonged to an important family of city bankers (the Simeón family), now houses, apart from a colonial-style mansion from the early 20th century (now a select university residence called 'Casa de Europe'), the University of Santiago's Advanced Studies Institute and the School of High Music Studies.
