Picturesque Jimena corner under remodelling

10.09.09 Obras construcción nueva Plaza del Pino 05 Work began yesterday on Plaza del Pino, one of Jimena’s most picturesque corners, where Fuente de la Cruz, La Vaca and Consuelo streets meet. It was much photographed over the years, by tourists and residents alike (see one below). According to a press release (with photo, above) from the Town Hall>

Jimena in flower 005 the square is to be demolished because it’s on a very steep hill and “is in a very bad state in terms of ‘urban furniture’, flooring, vegetation and accessibility.” Thus, says the release, it will now be furnished with “new cobbled flooring, drinking water and facilities for drainage, electric and telephone cables.”

And, yes, it will have a fountain! This time, though, the old mill stones that used to decorate a long-gone fountain, will be used in the new one.

Sounds great – Hopefully it will have a pretty fountain this time, not ‘coffins’ like the ones in the main street!
