Water Monument in Almuñecar

The Water Monument in town is actually made up of three separate statues; three torsos (one male and two female) leaping over three fountains of water. This monument was built to recognize the importance of the town acquiring its own water supply. Water was and is still one of the most important commodities in Almunecar and the Costa Tropical due to its reliance on agriculture.

The sculptures were created by the contemporary artist Miguel Moreno Romera that has created many of the pieces of work you will see in Almunecar. Along the Paseo del Altillo you will find another of his creations, the Monument to the Phoenicians, as well as the Monument to the Shipwrecked Sailors in La Herradura.

Getting There

The 'Monumento al Aqua' is located in front of the local police station, on Avenida Fenicia. The small plaza is right next to the towns bus station and just past the McDonalds where you enter town.
