This is the base of a statue in Villalonga, Valencia, Spain of Senent Pla who was a young man who lived in the seventeenth century. Local legend says that he found a tiny statue of Our Lady in the Serpis river during a time of famine and hardship. When he took the statue out of the box the Madonna appeared to him and promised that there would never again be a shortage of water in Villalonga. It is said that from that time the local fountains have not ceased to gush with beautiful water, reputed to be the best in Spain.
