  • Impressive as that French but this has very little to tell architecturally. It is a sign of the victory of Franco in 1956, and as such is a commemorative item. Deserves only if we passed by accident.

  • I don't give my evaluation the monument itself, but only to what he represents. Represents the victory of the dictatorial regime of general Francisco Franco in the Spanish Civil War, in which perished unjustly thousands of Spaniards. The civil war lasted between 1936 and 1939 and, even after 1939, Franco continued to decimate who opposed your regime, until your death in 1975. We are talking of about 550,000 killed by the Franco regime, in addition to millions of persecuted. For these reasons, Franco could have sent to build this monument in gold and diamonds that, to me, always zero. Annex picture obtained from the top of Faro de Moncloa. Note: I was not proposiotadamente visit the monument. I saw it, because I went to the Faro de Moncloa and the Museum of America.

  • This arch has a soul. When you stand in front of the arch. You would understand it.
  • Great place with scenic views of the Sierra. You can see part of the sierra from the square and it is a great spot for watching the sunset. You don’t have to pay anything and the “Faro de Moncloa” is very near. Highly recommended for a pleasant walk.
