Text : In the Plaza de España is the Pazo Municipal, built by architect Alejandro Sesmeros, who also worked in other buildings as well as in the street furniture. You can observe the dinamism and the activity of this key point of the city from one of the cafés nearby. In front of the city council, you will find the monument of the Héroes de Pontesampaio, a work by the sculptor González Pola, which remembers the victory over the French troops in the battle that gives name to the monument. After admiring the Ruinas de San Domingos, you can visit the Instituto Valle-Inclán, one of the few samples of modernist achitecture of Pontevedra. Then, you will find the Pazo de la Deputación, a majestic building of the 19th century, made by Domingo and Alejandro Sesmero. The walk ends in front of the headquarters of the Delegación de Educación, old Escuela de Artes y Oficios, built by Andrés Calvo, and opened in 1899. Finally, the Plaza de España has different green spaces. First, the Alameda del Arquitecto Sesmero, which occupies the old garden of the convent of San Domingos. If you go through the alameda, you will reach the Jardines del Dr. Marescot, a small oasis that offers a comforting shade in front of the facade of the old building of la Maestranza (17th century), which suffered different modifications through the centuries. Not far from this place you will find the Jardines de Colón and the Jardines de Eduardo Vicenti, that crown the pleasant walk through the green heart of the city.
