Attractions

Bronze sculpture that shows Gea, goddess of the earth, with a dual feed attribute (material and spiritual), that represents the woman as a nature fertility symbol. On one side, there are the material fruits of the earth that come out of the abundance horn; and on the other hand, the intellectual springs, symbolized by the flagon that spilled its waters.

The authorship of these sculptures, also have different versions. While some historians give credit to the Spanish Juan Rovira, others give credit to the Italian Giuseppe Beneduce.
