Right next to the pier in Puerto Vallarta, you’ll be able to see interesting bronze sculptures that year after years tourists have taken pictures with, but, how much do you know about these sculptures?
Come with us to Puerto Vallarta and discover the history of this destination and the sculptures.
THE NOSTALGIA OR LOVER’S SCULPTURE
Made by the artist Jose Ramirez Barquet, this beautiful sculpture represents love. The immortal couple looking at the horizon symbolizes the overcoming of obstacles and how time passes by when you are in love.
THE CHILD ON THE SEAHORSE
This iconic Rafael Zamarripa piece represents destiny with the child riding the seahorse, and it has been one of the most visited and photographed pieces since 1960. A fun fact about this piece is that the original base of the sculpture was blown away by a storm and the artist of this piece was asked to build a second one. Fortunately enough, the original base was found.
TRITON AND THE MERMAID
Made by Carlos Espino in 1987, this sculpture brings together two famous characters from Greek mythology, Poseidon and Amphitrite, representing the spirits of the ocean.
