Betanzos was part of the Provinces of the old Kingdom of Galicia and the family Andrade lived and left signs of its presence in walls, in gothic churches, bridges and hospitals.
The town is also part of the English Way that leads pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela.
In the XX century the town the Naveira brothers - migrants in Argentina being successful there, once they came back they created schools, social buildings, a park and a senior residence.
A visit to the As Marinas Museum will give the visitor the chance to discover among many traditional objects of Galician everyday life , archeological examples of the galician Celt and Roman presence. Probably the hightlight is the Apostolate made by Rubens and his scholars.
Wood made balconies look so attractive although they were actually once created with purposes such as drying clothes or corn.
