Historic plaza to be restored for centenary year
The plaza de Los Patos in Santa Cruz is to be given a new look to coincide with its first centenary.
After a year, the Cabildo Heritage report has been received, which has allowed approval of the remodelling project of this emblematic space.
The Local Government Board of Santa Cruz approved the technical project for the rehabilitation of the Plaza Veinticinco de Julio, popularly known as Plaza de Los Patos, after an important study of its current state, needs and improvements to be made.
The Mayor of the city, José Manuel Bermúdez, highlighted the coincidence of these works with the first centenary of the construction of this emblematic space, in 1917.
“If everything goes as we wish, it will be the best way to commemorate that anniversary,” he said.
Located at the intersection of calles Veinticinco de Julio, Costa y Grijalba, Viera y Clavijo and General O’Donell, the plaza de Los Patos is showing signs of significant deterioration given the given the time that has elapsed since its last indepth rehabilitation between 1990 and 1991.
The idea is to restore it to all its former splendour through a project which will last nine months and cost just over 500,000 euros.
