The El Cenachero Statue at the Plaza de la Marina was created by the artist Jaime Pimentel. It represents a fisherman who is selling his fish on two flat baskets that he balances on his shoulders.

It is always good to see statues or monuments dedicated to the working class. This one is located close to the Port and the large TI center.
