Statue of labourer and fisherman
A more traditional statue was moved to the entrance to the town as a focal point of the roundabout in 2001. This figure is both farmer and fisherman - a tribute to the two main sources of the town's wealth.Elder residents will remember that the statue was originally located on the seafront promenade, opposite the former grand fountain of Avenida Juan Carlos
Now it is admired by motorists and obviously too many judging by the number of vehicles that crash into it! The provision of a large safety barrier which would obscure the statue (while protecting it) is a subject of furious debate throughout the local bars.
The statue was moved back to its original position on the seafront promenade by Avenida Juan Carlos on 14 May 20212. José María García Urbano, the Mayor called it a 'historic moment' as the statue was returned to its rightful place, the previous move 'had been an error and carried out behind the back of the people of Estepona'.
