Vista Alegre Park (Finca Simeón)
print cuaderno de viaje

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 the Simeón, an important family of city bankers, now houses, apart from a colonial-style mansion from the early 20th century (now a select university residence called 'Casa de Europe'), a group of interesting contemporary buildings such as the University of Santiago's Advanced Studies Institute, the School of High Music Studies, the Natural Science Museum and the SGAE building.
