Sculptures of the "Raqueros" (Beachcombers)
Puertochico, once the city port, is today the marina where the Real Club Marítimo is located. Along its promenade you can find some sculptures dedicated to the Raqueros (children who long ago searched the seashore for wreckage). The raqueros were the children who lived close to the Santander wharves and were well-known as petty delinquents. José Cobo is the sculptor responsible for this work. He used the Bronze technique. Size of the sculptures: 60 inches x 263 inches x 87 inches.
