A garden of statues

This is the "caged" statue garden of Lezama Park. These statues populated the park a 100 years ago but due to the stealing, destruction and people who just didn´t care they were "imprisoned" in this cage and now it opens only an hour during the day so that people can enjoy their company. These statues where brought from Italy imitating famous works of art of the "old world". Nowadays the statues in the park, like the one of mother theresa (yes, she has one!) is made of polycarbonate...It´s a nice and quiet place to visit and maybe take a book with you and read... Posted by Picasa

I am now disappointed that I didn't get to see this? But it will be more interesting to look at now that I know the story behind it! Did you sit and rest on a bench for awhile? Looks like a hot day.

I would definitely bring a book here, breathe fresh air and enjoy the tranquility.
