Atlantas

The mural 'Atlantas', which pays tribute to the female artists behind some of the town's other famous paintings as well as women in general, is located on the El Pinar building just off Avenida Andalucia, across from the Mercadona supermarket on this street.

The painting by José Fernández Ríos covers 170 metres squared of the building and depicts a caryatid (sculpted female figure acting as a column) from ancient Greece. The mural represents women as a fundamental part (or pillar) of life, which can be seen by the fact that the sculpture in the painting is holding the Earth in her hands. It was unveiled on International Women's Day in March 2019 as part of the activities the town hall had in place for that day.
