WORKERS have begun restoring a fountain in a plaza in Almeria City after local authorities said it had fallen victim to vandalism.

Almeria City Council said the fountain, located in the Plaza San Pedro, was “shattered” by vandals on Tuesday night.

“Although the external wall is almost ready, the top tray is unrecoverable. We’ll have to do it again,” the authority said in a Facebook post.

Si escribo lo que pienso de los que han hecho esto, me cierran la cuenta. Repararemos la fuente y volverá a estar como nos gusta a todos los almerienses. No podrán con nosotros #vandalismo #AsíNO

Ramon Fernendez-Pacheco, the mayor of Almeria City, said repairs would begin immediately.

Workers were sent to the site yesterday (Wednesday).

“If I write what I think of those who have done this, Facebook would close my account. We’ll repair the source and go back to how all of us like Almeria,” he said.

Pictures shared by the mayor and by Almeria City Council showed one of the stone walls surrounding the fountain toppled over.

The stone work atop the monument had also been knocked off and was lying on the floor beside it.

The identity of those responsible remains unknown.
