Many news sources are reporting that now the city government plans to sell the area containing a fountain and the ¨Sunset Sailor¨ sculpture piece in front of the main square by the Melgar. The fountain has often contained no water and it is reported the pumps do not work because nothing has been maintained by the city. This fountain has been there since 1995 and, when working, always a favorite spot for tourists photos. The building next to the fountains has already been sold to Diamonds International.
To me, a shame the city doesn´t seem to have priorities to maintain sites of value to tourism.
If you don´t recall the fountain, a photo is here:
