The square Gabriel Miro is in a strategic and central place of Alicante, closely together of the principal commercial district of Alicante and very next the Old town. It receives his name in honoring to the from Alicante writer Gabriel Miro, a bust of the personage in one of the ends of the square like that expresses it. In the center one finds a majestic source of the year 1918 that receives the name of Source of The Aguadora, work of the sculptor Vicente Bañuls. In her we estimate a curious scene: in the highest part of the figure of a woman in foot with a water pitcher that falls down on the figure of a faun. The work is completed by other forms, as an animal of diabolical aspect or a sileno by tail of fish that holds to a goose that fights to escape.
