Un nuevo parque religioso

 San Cayetano Park, an initiative promoted by the Ministry of Tourism of Neuquén to diversify the tourist offer of the Patagonian province with the product of faith,  will be located in the town of  Zapala   and it will have eleven hectares for different uses, in addition to a spike chapel in homage to the patron saint of bread and labor, said that provincial body.

To this end, the architect and sculptor Alejandro Santana, author of the theme park Vía Christi in the town of Junín de los Andes, was summoned, who explained that it is “a recreational, cultural, sports and religious park in Zapala”, adding that the axes of the work will be “San Cayetano, the work and spirituality of Neuquén”.

“In the cultural stage there will be a path with mosaics and sculptures on the life of the saint, on issues of work and people from the area that had an impact such as Don Jaime de Nevares, which will end with a chapel shaped like a spike,” Santana explained.He
also noted that “there will be a recreational place with grills, games for boys, bocce courts and other activities for the elderly” and also announced the construction of “a sports sector with volleyball courts, football, tennis, swimming pools and a roofed stadium for ten thousand people.”

The Ministry of Tourism of  Neuquén  reported that the property will carry out a parking plan with native trees in the area, favoring their growth and climate adaptation, and proposed a project of water supply for irrigation and consumption.
The project is being prepared by Santana along with its technical team; the Planning Director of the General Directorate of Tourism Development of Neuquén, Marisa Lepin; technicians from the ministerial portfolio; and authorities of the San Cayetano Commission in the town of Zapala.
