A bit larger that San Miguel de Lillo, a nice to walk around. Not wheelchair accessible from the road. Nice views of the city. No parking facilities nearby.

The view was amazing and worth the trek. Free on Monday AM. There is a parking lot a little below the church and you can walk here and San Miguel from the lot. There are a few spots directly in front of each location.
