Joan Manuel Serrat inaugurates in Águilas the viewpoint that bears his name, claiming to feel "united to this beautiful place in the world" (11/09/2018)

Among a multitude of followers and accompanied by the mayor of Águilas, Mari Carmen Moreno, and the mayor of Culture, Lucía Hernández, Joan Manuel Serrat discovered a few minutes ago the monolith that gives its name to the viewpoint located on the beach of Los Cocedores del Hornillo ;

a place of the municipality, with the island of the Friar and the Embarcadero del Hornillo at its feet, dominated by the Mediterranean to which the singer-songwriter has dedicated one of his most emblematic songs.

And, precisely, the Mediterranean has been the protagonist of the words of the Catalan singer-songwriter;

a sea to which he has said- "those of us who were born on its shore, who carry their light and their smell wherever we go (...) we owe deep gratitude and therefore deep commitment, we have every right to enjoy it and all the It is a duty to defend it from destruction, from barbarians, from overexploitation and pollution, this sea is the dwelling place of all that we have lost and which man has turned into a garbage dump today. along the bottom of the Mediterranean - it has continued - in addition to remains of battles and shipwrecks, we would find plastics, thousands of tons of plastics, submarines plains with ridges of plastic, and the remains of some barges that never reached their destination. childhood has now become a sarcophagus where repose forever the hopes of thousands of women and men who paid with their lives the attempt to escape from themselves ".

To conclude, the author of the Mediterranean has assured himself that he feels "attached to this beautiful place in the world".

For its part, the mayor of Culture, which the mayor thanked to be the promoter and architect of this event, has said he felt "delighted with this first visit of Joan Manuel to Águilas" and convinced, alluding to one of the songs Serrat, that "today is going to be a great day".

Hernández explained that "the rock monolith that today looks on this lookout wants to symbolize Serrat's strength not only as a singer-songwriter, making us love the Spanish and Ibero-American poets, but his strength as a person, as a defender of freedoms, rights and of democracy ".

Finally, the first aquiline mayor reiterated the words of thanks to the mayor of Culture.

"From her was the idea that Joan Manuel Serrat was in Águilas today, not only offering a concert but also discovering this viewpoint".
