ULIA BERG

A natural park in the heart of the city. An ancient lookout point for spotting whales, the area covers an extensive green area of 318,249 m².

Ulía was constituted for recreational use by the aristocracy in the early 20th century. Today it is the city’s biggest hillwalking area. The Coastal Route on the Way of Saint James crosses the hill from east to west. The Peña del Ballenero (Whaler’s Rock) and Peña del Rey (King’s Rock), enormous stones used as lookout points, its picnic area, the revamped Ulía Youth Hostel and the unusual views of the city are just some of its attractions.
