RUTA DE MURALS

By Marianne Hill

‘La Ruta de Murales Artísticos de Estepona’ (Estepona’s Route of Artistic Murals) is an incentive implemented by the local council and the mayor, Jose Maria Garcia Urbano that was started in September 2012. The route is just one part of a local rejuvenation project.

The objective was to improve and enliven some of Estepona’s forgotten or neglected neighbourhoods and it was hoped that the series of murals that are spread across the town would put Estepona on the tourist map and make it a cultural destination. It was clearly a successful initiative and looking at the wide variety of murals it is clear to see why tourists and residents alike are eager to follow the route and view each of the murals.

The Tourist Office has published a map that shows where the murals are located. This is occasionally update to include the newest murals and so consequently the most recent artworks might not yet be represented on the Tourist Office map. Listed below are the murals presented in chronological order.
