The Phoenician Tribute in Almuñecar

Phoenicians Almunecar

This statue is a modern monument to commemorate the impact of past civilizations on the area, namely the Phoenicians. Constructed in Bronze by the contemporary artist Miguel Moreno Romera, it signifies the huge impact that the ancient Phoenician traders had on the history of Almunecar.

The Phoenicians not only founded the town, but were also the first to develop the Fish Salting Factory which later led to Almunecar's widespread success.

The Phoenician Tribute was built after the Laurita Necropolis and the Puente de Noy were unearthed nearby and their ancient mysteries discovered.
