The fence is usually wrapped with plastic, as the locals use the basin as a trash can, due to lack there off at the boulevard.
The water in the basin and proper illumination is missing since 2014.
However, that gives enough shadow at nighttime, that street-birds and hunting girls gather there to meet some walk-by customers. So at least one group of tourists finds this place interesting. Otherwise not worth turning the head

Almost real object that catches our attention. We came closer to the monument and found out that they were the first arrival of St Paul sisters missionaries to this part of the country..

I was glad to see them all. Unusual monument like getting to disembark seeing the land.It is also situated by the bay at the Rizal boulevard.

This is one attraction along the boulevard that you can't take your eyes off. The nuns all have male faces and some serious articulation about each one of them. Being such an unusual statue makes it interesting.

We initially drove by and I saw the monument and thought it was real...had to turn around for another look. Very interesting especially regarding the history of the nuns arrival to the area.

This unexpected statute representing the arrival of nuns in the area in 1904 is naive and funny, almost cartoonesque and makes for an original, if not really artistic, picture on the boulevard. This is at least something to be done on this otherwise uninspiring promenade.
