A Coruña e As Mariñas

Hightlight... Betanzos and Pazo de Mariñán

  • Historic Center of Betanzos

  • Pazo de Mariñán

Guarded by the Rivers Mendo and Mandeo, Betanzo's historic centre is one of the most beautiful monumental town centres in Galicia. At one time, the city was walled, and today it retains beautiful examples of the popular architecture with arched entry doors of medieval tradition. In its peaceful streets lined with traditional balconies and galleries, one can perceive the splendour of what was once one of the former provinces of the Kingdom of Galicia
Near to Betanzos, in the municipality of Bergondo, stands the majestic Pazo de Mariñán – declared an Historic/Artistic Complex in 1972, with its French-style garden holding a wide variety of plants. Bananas trees towering 50 metres high, centuries-old eucalyptus trees, cypresses from Portugal, black poplars and colourful camellias decorate this architectural gem, which is also home to what is known as the Garden of the Word, where the messages of distinguished visitors – mostly poets – are conserved at the foot of the trees they planted.
