Las Burgas Spa, Ourense

The answer to the last question was las Burgas spa and it is in the province and city of Ourense. If you want to know some more about it check out this page - galiciaguide.com/Ourense-spa.html. The spa dates back to the Roman period, but today there are only a few remains left. Its value is more historic than as a visitor attraction.

This weeks question is more taxing and its subject is actually quite typical of some of the ideas that are encapsulated into the way that Galician and Spanish society are promoted and kept alive.

October 2012 - There ia another great thermal Spa which is still going in Cuntis. It has numerous water treatments and therapies and a giant pool broken into different areas with jacuzzis, water jet massage etc. It costa about 18 euros for half a day's use. We would recommend it. You also get a sauna, sweat rooms and the like. However you need to take (or hire at a cost) towels, pool shoes and a waterproof hat.

QUESTION
In the city of Lugo there is a main town square or plaza called the Maior square. Part of it is gardened and part of it is hard landscaped and it sits in the middle of the original walled old town. Running down one side of this square is an unusual commemorative feature – or series of features. What are they and what is their purpose?
Do not confuse the location of the answer that I am looking for with the much larger park in Lugo named after the poet Rosalia de Castro. However, you may be helped by the fact that there is a connection and clue between the answer that I am looking for and this park!
