L'Aiguera Park in Benidorm
Tourist information and guide to L'Aiguera Park in Benidorm, Costa Blanca...
The L'Aiguera Park is a long green park in neoclassical style, separating the old quarter of Benidorm from the newer buildings. It is a nice park in Benidorm and well worth a visit. The two amphitheatres are used for shows and cultural events especially during summer season. The Park ends at the Bullring and a fairground site where attractions are set up for the many 'fiestas'.
The AigĂĽera park almost segments Benidorm. The â€śJulio Iglesiasâ€ť and â€śOscar EsplĂˇâ€ť concert halls are situated there. It reaches as far as the Bullring (1962) which boasts a small bullfighting museum and houses the installations of the Municipal Music Conservatory.
Where the AigĂĽera park meets the streets of Benidorm, there stands the modern City Hall, a bridging building which has won many awards, a â€śgroundscraperâ€ť, in contrast to the tall buildings and which, from the Plaza de los Reyes de EspaĂ±a, makes an entrance portico to the iconic park designed by Bofill. Nearly the entire body of the building is cantilevered and on its glass panels are the names of the over sixty thousand people recorded in the census at the time of its construction.
In September, from 4th to 8th the whole of Asturias meets up in Benidorm at the Aiguera park with their bagpipes and the traditionally dressed bagpipers. The festive foods and drinks like sidriĂ±a, â€śfabesâ€ť and â€śbollos preĂ±aosâ€ť; the Virgen de Covadonga also has her home in Benidorm.
