Monument to the Sacred Heart of Jesus (Mazarron - Murcia)

Monument to the Sacred Heart of Jesus (Mazarron)

This incredible sculpture of Christ is located in the “Cabezo del Faro”, on Mount Santa Catalina, and is classified as the first statue of the Sacred Heart built within the Murcia region.

Although its original creation date was 1924, the monument was destroyed during the Spanish Civil War and was rebuilt thanks to the initiative of the neighbourhood council of the region. It was the residents of Mazarron themselves who were in charge of gathering the necessary funds to carry out their restoration project, finally rebuilding it in 1952.
