[43°27'10.3"N · 8°11'58.2"W]
This project was the initiative of the O Pote Association of Friends of the Trees, founded in 1926, to build a nature area with specimens of native trees, and to hold local events. Its promoters included many emigrants who were resident in Cuba. In 1933, they created the Pote Festival, the first gastronomic event without any religious association in the whole region. Both the stage, the lighting pole and the ornaments are white and blue, the colours of the Galician flag and a very typical feature of Indiano architecture.
