  • Wonderful monument that represents Queen Elizabeth I of Castile on horseback. The statue is very realistic and worked in great detail, and is, in others, a symbol of Spain and its unity.

  • This monument stands in tribute to Queen Isabella I. The statues depicts the Queen on horseback, carrying a cross. At her side are Cardinal Francisco Jiménez de Cisneros and the Grand Captain, who is leading the horse by the bridle. Both alluding to the reconquest of Spain from the Moors. The statue sits atop a pedestal on which is inscribed with words referring to the discovery of Americas The monument is located the Museum of Natural History, so worth a look if in the area.
  • Sculptural Ensemble by Manuel Oms Canet en 1883 in bronze. The Sovereign sits on the Amazon, wears an embroidered dress and a veil on which the crown is. Hold the reins with your left hand and lift a cross with your right. Back to Cardinal Mendoza and the Great Captain. The set is surrounded by a small pond with four fountains as a spout which make the sculpture even prettier.
