Description   EN   

Welcome to the Plaza de Spana, or as we like to call it "The Fountain". This plaza, outside the Riverwalk in New Orleans, is a reminder to the Spanish heritage of the region. The coordinates take you to a dedication plaque for the plaza. Notice the name of the Mayor at the time of dedication; only in New Orleans, "The Cresent City", could they have such a mayor. My family likes to sit on the concrete benches around the fountain because they offer a little shade from the summer heat.

To receive credit for the find:
The back sides of the concrete benches depict various Spanish family crests. Find the one shown in the picture below and enter the family name in ALL CAPS as the Password.



Don't forget, this is the "Big Easy", so just sit back and enjoy the fountain for a bit...

Went down to find this one before leaving the Quarter for the day.  The fountain wasn't flowing like I've seen it in the past.  Merry Christmas Eve!  We are in town from Snook, TX visiting relatives.

I liked the idea of the picture. It made me look at almost all of them before I found the right one (isn't it always like that?). Thanks from KFL.
