This week we resume with our ninth photographic series on
the face-lift of San Antonio, when the 1992 summer tourism season had ended, by
showing a selection of pictures that were taken as the work began to reclaim the
twenty-five metres of land from the sea to make a way for a new promenade.
are also pictures of the two new fountains operational in the Paseo de las Fuentes
and one of Christopher Columbuss ship, Santa Maria, that the King of Spain
provided for Columbus to make his maiden voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to discover
America, which was installed in the centre of the Egg in the middle of the roundabout
at the entrance to San Antonio.
The wooden replica model
of Christopher Columbuss ship the, Santa Maria, was made and then installed
in the middle of the Egg by the renowned artist, Julio Bauzá, who we featured
in our Artists on Ibiza (Four) series, which was published in Weekly Edition 041
on Saturday 8th December 2001.
