Today I wanted to take you out on a walk in Parc de la Devesa in Girona.
It's not like I have a lot to say about this park, but I really love the tranquility of it, and the high high trees.
These high trees are called plátanos, but have nothing to do with platanos (bananas)!
There are 2500 of them, most of which were planted around 1850. Since they were planted at a close distance- instead of growing outwards, they have been "forced" to grow upwards, reaching altitudes not that normal for this kind of tree. (They are about 60 meters high.)
Worth a visit if you are in Girona! It's found just close to the historical centre of the town.
