Charming squares and corners

The Constitution Square

Constitution Square is the main square of the municipality. It began as a local market, while the fountain in the square supplied the village with water for domestic use.

The square that we know today as The Constitution Square was first named the square of the republic, and in later years was renamed “of Jose Antonio” in honour of General Primo de Rivera.

In addition to being the centre of greater social activity of the town, if we talk about the multiple uses the square has had over the years we would highlight its role as a meeting point for neighbours, for rallies, demonstrations, political events, and of course, for celebrations such as Carnival and our beloved and increasingly popular “Fiestas de San Juan”.

When we talk about the origin of the fountain we cannot forget that it was built for ornamental purposes after the expansion of the village at the beginning of the last century.

Another relatively recent element is the cannon ceded by Admiral Alfonso Mosquera in 2000.

Today, the “Fuente Viva” and the square are one of the most representative symbols of the municipality, especially after its remodelling in 2013.
