  • The statue is logical and to the place, without it something would clearly not be enough on this beautiful area of the sun. There is also a bear with an strawberry tree nearby, and together they are very harmonious.

  • When visiting Puerto del Sol, you will find three monuments worth seeing, including the Equestrian statue of Carlos III, situated in the centre of the square and facing south. This bronze statue is based upon a similar but smaller original found at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando and shows Carlos III, in stately attire, with a scroll in his right hand. He appears to be monitoring activity in the distance. The figure stands upon a pedestal, fronted by an inscribed Shield of Carlos III. This is a quality tribute to Carlos III and quick find at Puerta Del Sol for those who enjoy viewing monuments during your travels. Additional finds here include the classical style figure of Mariblanca on the western end of Puerta Del Sol as well as the enjoyable and important El Oso y El Madroño (the bear and the strawberry tree) figure at the opposite end of the square.
