Visiting Puerto Banus
The design and architecture of the main square is inspired by Greek architecture, with clean lines and white facades that give it a modern and elegant feel.
Due to its location and the services that surround it, it is one of the most popular spots in the city.
The old fishing port has completely disappeared under this modern, sprawling and expensive project.
A touch of apparent antiquity always looks good, and, probably for this reason, a tower apparently used to control the marina, was designed with a traditional air, and accompanied by a nice cannon.
“La Victoria” is a famous statue built of bronze and copper and standing on top of a 26-meter tall column of granite.
The statue is also known as “the Russian statue” by the locals because it was a gift from the Russian government to Spain in 2004.
It was created by the Georgian sculptor Zurab Tsereteli and designed by the Spanish architect Manuel de la Peña.
