The lower floor of the Cantabrian pavilion will be occupied by the thematic exhibition area, divided into a central space, the 'Cantabrian Nature Garden', and four content areas, forming a linear route without any type of architectural barriers. The pavilion features a highlight that will be a reference point for the entire Zaragoza International Exposition: a 3.6-metre high clepsydra. This clepsydra will mark the hours and minutes, as well as the remaining days of the Expo. The theme of the pavilion is the different stages of the water cycle, in keeping with the reality of Cantabria. These are topics articulated around a common thread. When you arrive at the pavilion, you will be surprised by the enormous accessible spheres that make a conceptual allusion to water, and to the contents that develop inside them. Between them, a spectacular garden appears in which the varied natural wealth associated with water in this region is recreated through the indigenous flora and the ponds.
