Mermaids Fountain Sign at Antigua’s Main Square

Mermaids Fountain Sign at Antigua's Main Square

I am sure that most people that visit La Antigua Guatemala get to see the fountain at the Main Square; some might even seat around the benches to contemplate the artistic and erotic hidden messages revealed by the ancient wail of the sirens’ allure. But, I am almost sure, almost nobody comes across this little sign describing the name of the fountain and the details about its creator. Am I wrong?

The sign above reads:
Fountain of the Main Square
So called of the Mermaids (Sirens)
Commissioned by the City Hall
To Main Architect Diego de Porres
