  • That is the most important you can see by the bulk of the pedestal much larger than that of f. Garcia Lorca. The famous playwright is depicted seated and dressed in the habit of the order of Santiago with a locket with the symbolic cross, while holding a book in his hand thoughtfully. Behind a feminine figure with the mask theatre symbol. I am attaching some pictures remember

  • Statue in honor to Don Pedro Calderón de la Barca, in the middle of Plaza de Santa Ana, very close to a hotel and a parking lot. Very nice and funny.

  • If you enjoy seeing monuments during your travels, there is an interesting statue to Spanish writer, playwright and poet, Pedro Calderón de la Barca located at Plaza de Santa Ana that is worth seeing if you intend to pass by this area of the city during visits to Madrid. Here you will see a robed and seated Calderón de la Barca, arms folded and resting upon a book being balanced on his left leg. Interestingly positioned behind him is a kneeling angelic figure. There are also nice bronze bas-reliefs on each side of the monument, which are likely scenes from his various plays. This is a nice monument by Spanish sculptor, Joan Figures Vila (1878) that is well worth spending a couple of minutes to enjoy at Plaza de Santa Ana.
  • Calderón de la Barca is the best representative of the Spanish Baroque Theatre. Deep Author, he knew how to reflect on the human condition and the avatars of his time. Of restless Spirit, he knew how to transcend the monotony of everyday life and read the existence from the light of the Christian faith he professed. Especially critical of the injustices born of class privileges and the obsession for honor. It Is worth highlighting the exquisite psychology of its characters. Especially women. Who distance themselves from the poor stereotype of "weak sex." An Interesting detail of this monument, are the reliefs present in its base. THE attentive observer will discover scenes of the most acclaimed works of the author, as The Mayor of Zalamea and life is Dream.
