View of the Vicente Roja fountain from the Plaza Juarez, extending upto the back of the restored temple of Corpus Christi.
The design of the fountain consists of a water mirror of 114 x 98 feet with more than one thousand red concrete pyramids that in addition to the movement of water generated by a series of air injectors between each pyramid turns into a great fountain full of movement. The fountain leads to various other works commissioned from a number of artists to bring back the tradition of public art that was once popular in the city.
