  • It is a statue of Cervantes, which can be said to be a celebrity in Plaza Espana, but when I think about it, I realized for the first time that it was a statue of Don Quixote and Sanchopanza, not the image of the author Cervantes.

  • The statue itself is a beautiful example of Spanish heritage, culture, and identity. It was a great shame to see the beautiful park being destroyed and pulled up. The pictures of the "future projects" of what the park will look like seem to be horribly designed. It looks like it will be just another generic "modern style" park with lots of squiggly lines and concrete, rather than the beautiful natural park with identity. These "modern art" style parks are devoid of uniqueness, although it tries so hard to be UK unique, they always end up just being "modern" rather than anything else. You can still take a look at the monument but cannot get near it now.
  • For my birthday, we traveled to Spain, landing in Madrid. One of the most gorgeous cities, Madrid displays statues that are breathtaking, in particular the Monument to Cervantes, with its Don Quixote and Sancho Panza. Highly recommend visiting Madrid and admiring all that it has to offer!
