San Antonio Face-Lift
Part Nine: Reclaiming Land From the Sea

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.

There are also pictures of the two new fountains operational in the Paseo de las Fuentes and one of Christopher Columbusís 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 Columbusís ship the, Santa Maria, was made and then installed in the middle of the Egg by the renowned artist, Julio BauzŠ, who we featured in our Artists on Ibiza (Four) series, which was published in Weekly Edition 041 on Saturday 8th December 2001.
