Parc de la Devesa

The Parc de la Devesa in Girona is the largest urban park in Catalonia, it is located between El Ter, Onyar and Güell, to the west of the historic center of the city from Girona. It is a work declared a cultural asset of national interest.

It has an extension of 40 hectares, of which nine are shaded walks. The park has more than 2,500 banana trees, hybrids of eastern and western species, most of which were planted around 1850 and are therefore about 170 years old. The Devesa bananas, placed at a very short distance from each other, have been forced to grow more in length than in width and this has caused them to prematurely reach the heights of their vital zenith. Many of them have the exceptional height of 60 m. In one of the corners of the park we find the Devesa gardens, a space surrounded by a stream where there are different plant species.

In 1980, the writer Narcís-Jordi Aragó (1932-2016) published La Devesa, paradís perdut, so far the only monogra...Read more
