  • Bronze statue made in 1991 by the sculptor Santiago de Santiago in homage to the work of the same name by Jose Padilla: it represents a seller of flowers (or if you want violets, the precursor flowers of spring similar to swallows, as indeed seems to want recite the phrase placed on the base of the statue). Monument that despite the young age had a troubled history, since initially stood on the corner of Gran Via and calla de Alcalà (near the Metropolis), then one day disappeared for quite some time and then reappeared here, at the beginning of the gardens by Las Vistillas in calle de la Moreria. Cute statue, a bit of mystery in its history, you take a picture and then that's it; come here just for it (apart from some curious, or some enthusiast: on the Violetera were also made movies) would not be recommended, but you can combine the visit with that of the gardens below of Las Vistillas, not to mention that the beautiful Basilica of San Francisco El Grande is really 2 steps away.
