Ciu­dad de los Par­ques

Santander Inolvidable - - Bienvenidos -

En ho­me­na­je a Francisco de Paula San­tan­der, en pleno Cen­tro de Bu­ca­ra­man­ga es­tá el Par­que San­tan­der, cu­ya his­to­ria da­ta de 100 años atrás. Si­tua­do en­tre las ca­rre­ras 35 y 36 con ca­lles 19 y 20, es­te his­tó­ri­co es­pa­cio es pun­to de re­fe­ren­cia de en­cuen­tro. Re­mo­de­la­do ha­ce tres años, ex­hi­be un mo­bi­lia­rio ur­bano con­tem­po­rá­neo, mó­du­los pa­ra ex­po­si­cio­nes, ban­cas, la fuen­te re­mo­de­la­da y con­ser­va las lu­mi­na­rias pa­tri­mo­nia­les. A un cos­ta­do es­tá la Ca­te­dral de la Sa­gra­da Fa­mi­lia y al otro, el Club del Co­mer­cio, cons­truc­ción re­pre­sen­ta­ti­va de la ciu­dad.

El Par­que San Pío aco­ge des­de di­ciem­bre de 2010 una co­lo­sal es­cul­tu­ra de Fer­nan­do Bo­te­ro. Des­de en­ton­ces, “Mu­jer de pie des­nu­da” ha atraí­do tu­ris­tas y cu­rio­sos que lle­gan pa­ra re­tra­tar­se con una de las fa­mo­sas ‘gor­das’ del maes­tro Bo­te­ro’.

Un en­torno pai­sa­jís­ti­co ro­dea­do de sen­de­ros na­tu­ra­les, cas­ca­das, fuen­tes, tan­ques y ca­na­les por don­de co­rre el agua, con­for­man el Par­que del Agua. Un am­bien­te na­tu­ral inigua­la­ble digno de vi­si­tar, que ca­da año desa­rro­lla en to­do su am­bien­te una te­má­ti­ca na­vi­de­ña di­fe­ren­te.

THE CITY OF PARKS

Lo­ca­ted bet­ween 35th and 36th ave­nue and with streets 19 and 20, this his­to­ri­cal pla­ce is a land­mark to know. Re­mo­de­led th­ree years ago, it ex­hi­bits an ur­ban and con­tem­po­rary ap­peal and has pre­sen­ta­tion mo­du­les, ben­ches, a re­mo­de­led wa­ter foun­tain and pre­ser­ves the his­to­ric lights from its past. Be­si­des the park, the­re is the Sa­cred Fa­mily Cat­he­dral, and on the ot­her si­de the­re is the Com­mer­ce Club, which is a sym­bo­lic buil­ding of the city.

The Saint Pius Park that sin­ce 2010 displays a co­los­sal scul­ptu­re from Fer­nan­do Bo­te­ro, known as “Mu­jer de Pie Des­nu­da” (Ba­re Foot Wo­man), has drawn the at­ten­tion of many tou­rists and cu­rious peo­ple that co­me to the park to ta­ke pic­tu­res with one of the famous fat girls ma­de by the mas­ter, Bo­te­ro.

A pris­ti­ne lands­ca­pe su­rroun­ded by na­tu­re paths, wa­ter­falls, wa­ter foun­tains, and ca­nals ma­ke the Wa­ter Park. A na­tu­ral and uni­que en­vi­ron­ment that is a must see, and that every year is de­co­ra­ted dif­fe­rently to ce­le­bra­te Ch­rist­mas.
