TENERIFE – PUERTO DE LA CRUZ – Lago Martiánez – The Monument to the Sea or Waves

he complex of pools at El Lago Martianez is the biggest outdoor Museum of Contemporary Art with swimming pools in Europe. The creative mind behind this architectural work was the well-known and appreciated Canary Island artist César Manrique. This blend of leisure and art makes Lago Martianez one of the best waterparks in Tenerife and in the world.
Al Mar o a las Olas (Monument to the Sea or Waves). Having no fixed point as a perspective, its size is deceptive from afar, seeming larger than the sculpture really is.
Rendered and roughened concrete sculpture that represents static concrete waves crashing into each other, in contrast to the dynamic waves of the water. Its base forms a small labyrinth for children to use and enjoy.
