The new heart sculpture in Almuñecar’s La Herradura is blue in homage to the sea and will become the official symbol of the town.
La Herradura now has a sculpture that is set to become the representative symbol of the town. The sculpture was made in the Moreno Brothers Workshop in Granada and can now be found next to the roundabout at the entrance to the beach of La Herradura.
The heart sculpture was unveiled on June 29, right after Juan José Ruiz Joya was elected as the new mayor of Almuñecar. He expressed his pride at having his first official act as mayor in his hometown of La Herradura.
Miguel Moreno, who was accompanied by his brother José María, said that the idea was to make a heart that “said ‘I love you La Herradura’ but was not the same as all the other hearts that we have seen” and that “had something masculine and feminine, concave and convergent”. The heart measures 180 x 120 x 65 cm and is blue as an allegory to the waves of the sea.
