In the year 1976, the company "Patronato de Autopistas del Ebro", organized a competition to produce twelve large format ceramic murals which can be seen at the Service Stations of the AP-2 motorway. The axis of the theme was the motorway itself, where competitors were invited to represent what the road inspired in them. The Project is historically framed in the epoch of Spanish Transition (1975-1978) with the intention to modernize, open up internationally, and to develope the country's infrastructures.
