  • My first look was a quick one. But, if you take a moment to look at the monument, it’s really quite touching. Do not know who the soldier was or the historical significance other than what I read...  more »
  • Near the Palacio Nacional, this monument is surrounded by some beautiful gardens. The history is interesting, but I enjoyed the gardens the most.  more »

  • One of the interesting things to see at Plaza De Oriente is the monument to Luis Noval Ferrao, a heroic Spanish soldier who fought and died during battle in Morocco in 1909. Ferrao was noted for his bravery and heroic fighting, becoming a symbol of national pride and nationalism during the early part of the 20th century. A product of that movement was this bronze statue was created by Spanish sculptor Marino Benlliure in 1912. Here you find a bronze figure, fully dressed in soldiery attire and gear, walking forward in front of a large scale stone flag being held by a female figure. The statue is atop a decorative stone pedestal, with inscription in Spanish. It is a nice war memorial, located at the northern end of Plaza De Oriente in an area referred to locally, and in travel books, as Jardines Del Cabo Noval. It is worth having a quick look if you enjoy seeing monuments during your travels.
