Avenida del Mar
The Avenida del Mar is a beautiful walkway from downtown Marbella to the Paseo Maritimo. It has fountains, benches, yellow marble floors and a wonderful view of the sea. What calls attention are the ten bronze sculptures by Salvador Dali, the surrealist master. A former mayor decided to have the city purchase the sculptures when the little park was being redeveloped.
Among the sculptures are those of Perseo, Mercurio, Trajano a Caballo, Gala Gradiva, Caballo con Jinete Tropezando, Elefante Cosmico, Don Quixote Sentado, Hombre Sobre Delfin, Gala Asomada a la Ventana, and Mujer Desnuda Subiendo La Escalera. Residents and visitors to Marbella can enjoy this art on the street in a beautiful setting.
There is another Dali sculpture in Marbella at the Cristamar roundabout entrance to Puerto Banus. It is a huge statue of a rhino and is known as the Rinoceronte Vestido Con Puntillas (the rhino dressed in lace), and was donated to the city in 2004 by a businessman to celebrate the centenary of Dali's birth.
