Granxa do Xesto Park
print cuaderno de viaje

A large natural space on the slopes of Monte Pedroso (Compostela's most emblematic hill), halfway between a city park -due to its configuration, layout and facilities- and forest; in fact, it is bordered by the Monte Pedroso Forest Park.

Granxa do Xesto combines woodland (eucalyptus trees, pines and native species), grassland and small lakes fed by natural springs. It features 3 km of paths, a children's playground, coffee shop and different sports elements.

It is also the starting point of a network of paths around Monte Pedroso, where an interesting outdoor Way of the Cross, made up of large stone 'cruceiros' or crosses, leads up to the summit, offering a fine view of the city in the surrounding landscape.
