  • This monument stands in tribute to Emilio Castelar, a Spanish politician, and president of the First Spanish Republic. Not only was he a national leader, he was a noted writer and journalist and left a legacy in print of political science such as a history of the Republican Movement in Europe amongst other works. The monument features a stone base with figures on all four sides. On the main side, facing southwards, is the bronze figure of Emilio Castelar, and at his feet lies a marble Venus, an allegory to the truth. Flanking him on either side are two classical public speakers, Cicero and Demosthenes who observe and listening to Castelar. Like many great monuments in Madrid, this sits in the middle of a roundabout in a very busy road. I didn't even try to get closer. The monument is really out of the way of the main tourist areas. While it's definitely worth a look, only do so if you have a bit of time in Madrid
  • A statue in the middle of a busy roundabout. I doubt if many people know who this person was Impossible to view at close quarters
