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...
