Park O Pasatempo

It is located in the outskirts of Betanzos. This encyclopaedic park with educational ends and its historical garden were declared Monument of Cultural Interest (BIC) in 1981.

History: Initially, when it began to be built in the year 1893; it was planned as a big encyclopaedic park that integrated buildings, gardens and sculptures of about 90.000 m2 . Originally, it had two parts: the gardens, that with 80.000 m2 covered all the low and plain area of the complex; and the plastic area of about 8.000m2 distributed in different levels taking advantage of the inclination of the land. Apart from its social and intellectual background, O Pasatempo had an eminently economic end, to be allocated to the most disadvantaged classes in Betanzos in a time of a hard recession.

Description: It is the work of rich Indians, the García Naveira brothers. O Pasatempo was born as an openair recreational museum about varied knowledge, by representing the technological innovations of the time. From what we can still watch, the caves and underground passages, the Retiro pond, the cloks with the worldwide time zone, the polychromed murals (which represent means of transport such as the light aeroplane, the airship, the funicular or the España morárquica wall and its 18 republican doughters) or the mosque of Mohamed Alí stand out.

Surroundings: The lowest level, from which very few could be recovered, is today a modern park whose facilities include an auditorium, a recreational garden, childrens enclosure, and botanic park in which the "Train of O Pasatempo" stands out.

Timetables: Monday to Friday, from 10.00 to 13.00 and from 16.00 to 20.30. Weekends until 21.00. Historical enclosure, only at weekends: from 16.00 to 20.30 h. Tickets: Free.
