Celia Viñas bust

Since 1984, this sculpture pays homage at the Plaza Bendicho the author Celia Viñas Olivella (Lleida, June 16, 1915 – Almeria, June 21, 1954) who wrote children’s poetry in Castilian and Catalan, with a brief but considered renewing work and key in the panorama of the postwar period. Viñas studied Philology at the University of Barcelona and worked several years as a teacher in Almeria, where he arrived in 1943. Here he married Professor Arturo Medina Almeria and lived very close to its people until his death in 1954.
