Island of Sculptures
The Island of Sculptures is in the outskirts of Pontevedra. It is full of granite figures, with a maze and many gardens. You can get there from the center of Lérez by the footbridge that crosses the river directly to the island. The eucalyptus trees occupy most of the 70,000 square meter site. By the river, it is common to see ducks and swans cruising under wooden bridges and towards the end there is a spectacular view of the Monastery of San Benito de Lérez. The Island of Sculptures is considered the largest outdoor museum in Galicia and houses a permanent exhibition with a dozen works of art.
