Jardines de Piquío (Piquío Gardens)
By 1925, a reform of the small cliff parting the two beaches of El Sardinero was undertaken in a way that during the second decade of the 20th century the Piquio gardens were created. The beautiful arrangement of Canarian palm trees and the pergola decorated with lush tamarisks stand out.
There is a charming viewpoint surrounded by pergolas that provide a resting place for relaxing. Likewise, the garden enclosure is coloured by the great variety of flowers. Two species are worthy of mention -the blue eucalyptus (on the Avenida de Castañeda having over 4 meters diameter) and the elm, towering over 2 meters high in the garden area.
