The city of Mondragón in Arrasate, Spain has an old legend, saying the city takes its name from a roaming "dragon", which was killing the village people. Thus, Mondragon literally means "Mount of the dragon" and the towns coat of arms also depicts a dragon. It was therefore an obvious choice to make a playground inspired by this tale, when MONSTRUM was asked to design and produce a playground for the city.
