THE old Font Gran de Altea la Vella, located in the Garroferet area of Altea, has been restored after a project costing €12,300. Infrastructure Councillor Diego Zaragozi said the action was required as tree and plant roots had caused stones to move and crack, especially near the top of the fountain. It has also been thoroughly cleaned. Mr Zaragozi said that the Font Gran was one of the most important natural sites in the town and it was vital that it was properly looked after before it lapsed into a worse condition.
