One of the most beautiful areas of the city is the Barrio de Santa Cruz, an old quarter of the city located on the slope of Mount Benacantil, famous for its narrow streets and colourful home facades. The city also has many beautiful parks like Canalejas, El Palmeral, Parque del Morant, Parque de Quijano, where you can stroll and take a break from the bustle of the city.
