ÁNGELES MUÑOZ, mayor of Marbella, oversaw the inauguration and blessing of the statue of Jesus of Nazareth.
The ceremony took place on the street that bears his name and has been installed with the support of numerous civic and religious authorities.
Muñoz said: “It is an historic and symbolic day because it fulfils a longing of many people in our city that, thanks largely to the Brotherhood, is now a reality.
“With the installation of this statue the dream of many people is realised and the place where it is located is praised.
It fills with pride all those who feel the gaze of the statue, which many call ‘Lord of Marbella’, and of all those who pray, ask and profess authentic devotion. As mayor I am proud to share this special day.”
