The Parque Municipal in the center of Barranco is a nice place to sit down, relax or just to see and to be seen. The park was inaugurated on the 13th of February 1899. In the center of the park stands a Venus statue, known as 'La Donaide', surrounded by a fountain. Here you find as well the "Biblioteca Municipal de Barranco", built at the end of the 19th century. The unique tower was added in 1911. In former times it housed the municipality; today it accommodates the public library that provides among many others books written in Braille for visually disabled people. Just opposite is the "Iglesia de la Santisima Cruz". Every evening around 06.00pm local artist show and sell their works. The park is very popular at night as it is surrounded by many clubs and bars.
