The center of Dénia this Wednesday has fewer barriers. La Glorieta of the Valencian Country, after almost ten months, is once again passable.
The residents of Dénia have come across a surprise this afternoon, and that is that access to the Glorieta has no longer been blocked by the fences that this morning were still prohibiting entry. During the beginning of this week, the construction materials and machinery have been removed, but today the closure to pedestrians has been concluded.
Now, although each of the four entrances were now open for the first time since autumn 2022, they could soon be closed again. This is because despite being passable, everything indicates that the work has not been completed. The Glorieta is dirty, with remains of work, there are paving stones on the exterior to be polished and it is expected that a layer of paint will also be added to the walls, where there is some spray painted.
Additionally, perhaps most strikingly, the vegetation has become wild and now looks like a small forest. After so many months without care, the plants have taken over the place and weeds have sprung up everywhere. Also in the new flower pots, which despite being only a few weeks old already present an image of neglect more typical of an open field. The weeds, very tall and leafy, have completely covered the floral decoration that they had chosen and which there is no longer any way to see.
This is how the Glorieta is when practically two months have already passed since the works should have been completed, according to the contract. It looks like you can walk inside now, but it doesn't look finished. There's little left, but it's there.
