Description

Half figure on a pile of rocks.

Paco Afonso tragically lost his life on 11 September 1984, when he, as civil governor of the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, together with his driver and local volunteer firefighters, became caught up in a fire storm in La Gomera while fighting forest fires ravaging the island.

The monument was inaugurated on 3 December 1985. It was made by four students of fine arts, Roberto Ayala [Padrón], Rosa León, Francisco Rodríguez and Evelia Martín.
