The Sirena de Coruna sits on the edge of the Bay of Orzan in the city of Coruna in northern Spain. She looks out over the water towards the rest of the city, waving to ships and boats in the bay, and greeting the setting sun each evening. She was created by Márgara Hernández Smet in 1995. She is also known as La Sirena del Orzán. map
