Photographer's Note

In the summer of 1994 the Stallions park was inaugurated, located on the old orchard of this disappeared Alcalaino barracks, in whose center an ornamental fountain was built decorated with a rearing horse cast in bronze by the sculptor Pepe Noja, then very active in Our city.

The symbolism of the figure is evident, since he tried to pay tribute to this military establishment that for many years raised and tamed race horses right in this enclosure.

En el verano de 1994 se inauguraba el parque de Sementales, situado sobre la antigua huerta de este desaparecido cuartel alcalano, en cuyo centro se construy una fuente ornamental decorada con un caballo encabritado fundido en bronce por el escultor Pepe Noja, por entonces muy activo en nuestra ciudad.

El simbolismo de la figura es evidente, puesto que trataba de rendir homenaje a este establecimiento militar que durante muchos aos cri y dom caballos de raza justo en este recinto.
