Finished the sculpture section for Vallarta

Post by webmaster » Fri Mar 22, 2013 9:00 pm

Finally, took some time, I finished a directory of most of the sculptures in town, many with original research, data, videos, photos and more.

You can read it here: http://www.puertovallarta.net/what_to_d ... llarta.php

For example, does anyone know why the crown on the Guadalupe Parish is held up by 8 angels?
Or does anyone know that the Seahorse on the malecón isn't the original one?
Why is the Vallarta Whale a statue for the World Records?

Find out these things and more.

Thanks Kat, Howard and Davilin, if you notice any missing elements I'll add them on.

I now know there is a Lorena Ochoa statue on the Malecon II, anyone know exactly where it's located?

Sorry Mogen's, I don't know it's exact location. I haven't really walked the Malecon for the past 2 years. I will be there in June, and will be walking it then. :) Hopefully someone can answer your question before then.

Great for you

Good for you, Vallarta has changed a lot in 2 years... mostly for the better, though I can't get over that horrible Molino de Agua condo, but otherwise most things have been for the better.

I found the location of the Lorena Ochoa sculture: http://goo.gl/maps/meoie

It's at Agustín Rodríguez and the Malecon II.

I'm adding it to the sculpture list soon.
