THE DELEGATION of Historical Patrimony of Rondeno has announced the actions that will be carried out to solve the problems that have been detected at La Fuente de Los Ocho Caños of Ronda, one of the most emblematic monuments of the city, located in the Padre Jesús neighbourhood. Councillor, Ignacio Alonso, has indicated that he has been working on this issue for a month and a half and has identified a breakdown in the pipes of the water supply due to a deterioration that needs a rather delicate repair because of its historical element.
It has already been decided how to work on the replacement of the pieces and with all the necessary care to avoid any damage to the stone from such an important source, hoping that everything is fixed at the beginning of the year at the latest, with the eight pipes running.
Finally, he has announced that he is already intervening in another project, the unearthing of the historical tombs located in the neighborhood of La Planilla that will allow for a recreational space. This space is already being adapted with clearing and replanting, urban furniture elements will be located and, finally, a research project will be launched that will include excavations to be able to study in depth the four dolmens that are there.
