Información

The Parque del Pasatiempo, located in the town of Betanzos, began to be built between 1893 and 1895, and was designed and financed by Juan García Naveira.

Of the 90,000 m² that the garden originally had, only a tenth has been preserved. The list of everything we can see in the section known as the caves speaks for itself of its miscellaneous reproduction in cement, a new material at that time. In addition to the caves and underground passages, the Retirement Pond, the polychrome murals that reproduce means of transport such as the aeroplane, the funicular railway, maps of the Panama Canal, the pyramid of Cheops in the testimony of a tour of Egypt, etc., are also noteworthy.
