9. The picnic area
The name of this place is not the result of chance, but of logic. During the summer afternoons, when there is shade, the freshness of the mountain and the river seize this hideout, making it the ideal place for a snack or a picnic.
Here we find again a mural of nature, very similar to the one of the waterfall, but with another decorative element: bamboo.
The most notable and anecdotal aspect is the separation between the table, an imitation of wood, and the bench and seats in shape of mushrooms, which would not be too comfortable today. If we sit down, we can prove that we would not be able to reach the snack on the table.
This is partly due to the attire women used in that time, at the beginning of the 20th century: luxurious dresses that needed a certain space. And it is also due to the lifestyle of the upper class of the time. The Artigas were a wealthy family and could afford the luxury of having domestic servants to serve everything they needed from the table.
Looking at the picnic area, on the right we see a small step that was used as bench for the children and the stairs that lead us to the Fisher Corner, a small balcony over the river for fishing lovers, which is an activity of long tradition in this area.
If we turn around, with the picnic area behind us, we find the Bridge of Arches.
