A little to the right, blue twin towers. Towards the right, the tower of the Cathedral of Murcia. In the foreground, the geodesic vertex.
Click on the image for more detail. This time I took the photo with enough mega pixels to see better details.

Geodesic Vertex

A geodesic vertex is a signal / geographical landmark built by engineers to measure the earth. These signs indicate the exact position and are located at the top of the hills, mountains, towers, .. They may also be at ground level or at sea
Its name is given for each vertex does precisely on top of an imaginary triangle with the closest, which in turn form a series of triangles with other geodetic vertices. Each milestone has its own name and has marked the coordinates and altitude compared to sea level.
In this geodesic vertex plate reads: National Geographic Institute. Geodesic vertex. The destruction of this sign is punishable by law.
That phot was taken in the top of the Mine Mountain.
An example of place where this vertex are: here

Game Of Boys: Elisa Seiquer

I've been looking for information about the author of this work, and I've found that it is the sculpture Game of Boys (Juego de Muchachos), by Elisa Seiquer. This artist was born in 1945 in Murcia, died in 1996. Shortly after beginning her studies at the School of Arts and Crafts, she went to Valencia and Madrid, to expand her knowledge. She received a scholarship to study in Paris. In 1972, she received the award in sculpture Francisco Salzillo.
Like most women in all spheres of society, she was not assessed, but today, her work is well recognized.
Here you can see some of her works. The sculpture of the image (early eighties) can be viewed in the garden of the 3 cups (garden of Isaac Peral), in the neighborhood of La Flota, Murcia.

Seeing which photo post today, I saw that I still had some photos that I had not seen when I visited the Oceanographic in Valencia.
Jellyfish of the Mediterranean Sea.
I do not know if talking about these beautiful jelly-like animals, of which some species are quite dangerous, or I could comment on Medusa or Medousa, in Greek mythology.
I leave it there.

Church-Museum Of Saint John Of God.

This is the facade of the Church-Museum, San Juan de Dios, which I already mentioned some time ago.
I will just add to what I said in that post, the following:
"Muslim Alcazar (walls, oratory and pantheon)
The ground floor of the set allows us to discover the archaeological remains of the old Moslem fortress and the wall of 30 meters in length, which belonged to the defensive line of Alcazar Mayor of the city.
It is an area of great historical value which have preserved the interesting remains of an arch or mihrab oratorio, with its original polychrome decoration, as well as a real or rawda pantheon, with nine graves tumular structure attributable to the family the ruler Ibn Mardanis, known as the 'Wolf King' (1147-1172)."
