Raíces Fountain in San Juan, Puerto Rico

The terminus of Paseo de la Princesa is accented with the exquisite Raíces Fountain. Raíces means roots. The sculptural group represents the mix of cultures that shaped Puerto Rico, predominately the Spaniards, Africans and the indigenous Taino people. The ensemble was designed by Miguel A. Carlo and created by Luis Sanguino. The installation in 1992 was part of celebrating the 500th anniversary of the discovery of the Americas.
