The Local Government Board has recently awarded the architect Francisco Guerao López the minor contract for the technical direction and coordination of safety and health of the rehabilitation works of Fuente Juan de Uzeta and its surroundings, for an amount of 2,359.50 euros VAT included.
The rehabilitation works will be financed in full by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the Autonomous Community, with a total budget of 59,490 euros, and whose work is currently pending bid by the City Council.
The Council of Government approved in December the granting of this aid, because the monument showed signs of aesthetic degradation and problems of functioning of the water flows, which made necessary a deep conservation action to avoid the loss of original elements and return to the set an image that allows the original morphological and chromatic reading.
The fountain was built in the eighteenth century, south of the Plaza de la Constitución, and is part of an urban group of great artistic value in which is the church of Santiago Apóstol, declared an Asset of Cultural Interest, to the west;
the Consistorial House, to the north;
and the House of Contributions and the Plaza de la Balsa Vieja, to the east.
