New Murals in El Cotillo

The preferred stop of the Cotillo embellished with decorative murals. The Cabildo de Fuerteventura continues to improve and fine-tune the network of interurban road transport infrastructures.

The Ministry of Transport leads this project in collaboration with the members of the Employment Plan 'The Cabildo promotes Employability'. These tasks include repairs, conditioning, cleaning and the beautification of the infrastructures with artistic murals.

One of the murals already completed is located in the Morro Jable Bus Station, showing a stunning beach of Costa Calma. Additionally, two murals are being painted at the preferred stop of El Cotillo. This latest design is inspired by Jules Verne's literary work, '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea', and features a surfer in action on the beaches of Fuerteventura.

The president of the Cabildo, Lola García, together with the Minister of Transport, Luis González, and the Minister of Employment Promotion, Nuria Cabrera, made a visit to observe the progress of these works. During the visit, they expressed their appreciation to the artist responsible for these murals, José Antonio Marichal, who shared his inspiration behind the chosen themes.

Marichal explained that he opted for these themes, due to "the indisputable intrinsic relationship that exists between reading and public transport".

In reference to the surfer mural, he stressed that it represents "the enjoyment and beauty that this sport provides, giving the opportunity to interact directly with nature." The murals have aroused great interest among residents and visitors of El Cotillo, attracted by the curiosity they generate.

In addition to the artistic contribution, the Cabildo de Fuerteventura is promoting employability through its plan 'The Cabildo promotes Employability', which is part of twelve employment plans financed exclusively with the island's own resources.

Thanks to an investment of 5.3 million euros, this program offers job opportunities to 189 unemployed people in various fields such as equality, education, care for the elderly and rehabilitation of public spaces. This particular scheme, the largest of all, provides employment for 77 people working on the improvement of various island-owned infrastructure.

They’re superb. A true artist at work and I find a real inspiration. I’m looking for work and hope I can get a job painting in some bus shelters. I have a Mural on my bedroom ceiling that looks a bit like the Sistine Chapel. At least that’s what one my girlfriend thought.
