This fountain was erected in 1991, just after the Pilar Square, also called the Cathedrals Square, was remodelled. It was built with the purpose of glorifying the Hispanic world. On the 12th of October, Columbus Day, Zaragoza celebrates the festivity of Our Lady Pilar. This is the reason why the Virgin Pilar became the patron saint of the Hispanic world. The fountain represents a map of Latin America: in the upper left part you can see a hole that symbolizes the Yucatan Peninsula and Central America. The north part of South America is embodied by a waterfall, and a pond stands for the rest of the continent as far as Tierra de Fuego.
