The work, which was ordered by agreement of the community in 1947, was in a state of disrepair until, in 2014, a restoration of the monument was carried out, with which it was returned to its original state.
The monumental work has an inscription on the base, which reads: "Raised by popular subscription", remembering that it is for a historical character and much appreciated in this town.
