The alameda is in the former lands of the counts of Altamira
They handed the lands over to the council and they built a park in the XVI century. It was designed taking into account the three social classes of that time. That's why it has three walks, one for every social class. It is called the horse shoe park because it is a horse shoe-shaped park.
The sights of the city from the Alameda are wonderful. The oak trees which you can find in the park are typical from Galicia and they were regarded as magical trees by the Celts. These oak trees are one of the largest varieties in Galicia. They were used to hang people by Inquisition in the XVI century.
In the middel of Alameda we find the Church of Santa Susana.The old church was rebuilt in the XIX century and they built a belfry.
