THE Europa Fountain, currently located in Nerja’s Verano Azul Park, is to be relocated to Plaza de los Cangrejos.
Infrastructure councillor, Nieves Atencia, explained in a press conference the reason behind the relocation is that the emblematic fountain was placed in a barely visible area after the construction of a football field in the park.
The Europe Fountain was built as a landmark to represent the union of European countries. Its central column is formed by stones sent from each country that belonged to the European Union at the time of its construction (2,002) and its base was built with stones collected from each Autonomous Community of Andalucia. It was inaugurated in July 13 of 2002, in the presence of ambassadors from different countries of Europe.
Now the Council intends that locals and visitors alike are able to enjoy the view of such a symbolic piece of art.
