The union and the phoenix

At the top of a building, between the church of Santa Catalina, and the Flowers Square (Plaza de las Flores), is this sculpture. I think in bronze made. The building was owned by a Spanish insurer company: La Union Y el Fenix Español.
The company decided to take a building in every Spanish city. In fact, can be seen in many Spanish cities. The company became part of France's AGF, and subsequently both were acquired by Allianz.
Nowadays, is a building basically of offices.

Sunset at Sucina, Murcia

This sunset I have photographed arriving Sucina, from the beach. Sucina is the first town you can find when you return to the city of Murcia, from the beach. Well, as long as you take the road from San Javier in Murcia by Sucina. This town has nothing to highlight, but now foreign population is growing thanks to the resorts being built there.
The beach is really close to Murcia, just 50 km.
