Portia Maula's sculpture welcomes El Ejido

The new roundabout at Avenida Oasis is where the heritage monument in honour of Portia Maua is located, close to the Ciavieja site. This piece is part of the University of Almeria's ongoing project of excavation, conservation, dissemination and dissemination of this archeological zone. It will be located near the Ciavieja site.

The monument pays tribute to this murgitan matron's important contributions to society in that period. Lucio Pedanio-Vento's wife, and referred to by her family as "exemplary" mother and person, she has been a symbol of the municipality for many decades. Her name is also used for the awards that are given on March 8, Women's Day.

Francisco Javier Galan Domingo created the three-meter tall monument, which is eight to five metres high and weighs 1,300 kilos. He explained that the cast bronze piece was approximately three meters in diameter and has been seated on a corten steel foundation with drawings and text covered with translucent polycarbonate.

Francisco Gongora (the mayor of El Ejido), who yesterday supervised placement of the monument along with the author of it and the councilors for Culture and Public Works Julia Ibanez and Alberto Gonzalez respectively, stated that "it's a tribute to Portia Maura" and pointed to the Ciavieja location, where the Roman inscription was found on its pedestal, a piece which is part of El Ejido Archaeological Collection.

This action is not only about disseminating El Ejido's heritage, but also about promoting Ciavieja as an attractive tourist product that will increase El Ejido's status as a top-quality cultural destination.
