PARKS IN VITORIA, THE GREEN RING

Vitoria is a city with many pedestrian areas, parks and bicycle lanes. Going for a bike ride is very recommended, because there are very few hills. A very easy and handy route joins the Parque de La Florida and Armentia, a small village just three kilometers away.

There are eleven points for borrowing bicycles around town. One of them is very close  from the park, in the Touristic Information Office. Bikes are free, you will only be required to show your ID card or passport.

All in all there are six parks around Vitoria: they form the so called “green ring” of the capital. One of them, Salburua, is not really a park, but one of the more relevant continental wetlands in the Basque Country, and Ramsar wetlands internationally catalogued.

There are several marked walking and bike routes there. Just follow the signs along the paths.
