  • close to the fishermen bastion, this is a standard statue of Europe. Nothing much to do after takinf some photos 
  • Nice statue, worth seeing if in the area. we visited mid morning, place was not busy and we could take nice pictures and take in the beauty of the status and area 
  • As part of the Fisherman's Bastion it has commanding location on the site. Adds to the atmosphere of the place and relevance within the history of the city.
