About the Monument to the Espetero & Espetos

The Almuñécar City Council pays homage to the espetero and the espetos with a Monument along the Paseo de San Cristóbal.  Located next to Restaurante Botos, across from Helios Hotel.  Honored at the unveiling were locals of the trade; Manuel Mingorance Pérez “Piliki”, Miguel Rodríguez Moral “El Roquetero” and José Manuel Ortuño “El Arapo”, as well as Carmelo Martín Pérez.

The city council would like to recognize so many men from our town who are authentic artisans of flavor, espetar, control fire, and, ultimately, artisans of the ritual of making a good sardine skewer.  This monument is in honor of the traditions of our parents and the children who will do so in the future.  It’s things like this that will continue to enhance the Almuñécar culture even more.  It is already an excellent photo hotspot.

The work, carried out by the Moreno Brothers of Granada and will serve to honor the memory of many people dedicated to this job. Which is a tradition of the chiringuitos.  It was made with a mixed technique: forged and welded sheet metal and cast bronze (head, foot, hands, and sardines).

This is the 9th piece of work by Miguel Moreno commissioned in Almuñécar and La Herradura.  The other monuments have been displayed in various parts of the municipality since 1984.  You will recognize the monument to Los Fenicios (Paseo del Altillo). Abderramán Monument (next to the Peñones del Santo). Seahorse (Aquarium Square). Monument to the Men of the Countryside (Carrera de la Concepción). Water Monument (Water Square). Monument to the flamenco singer, Rafael Muñoz “El Niño del Cerval” (Alta del Mar street). Monument to the Men of the Sea and the Heart, on La Herradura beach.
