  • Ordinary statue (bronze on a marble pedestal) dedicated to a person unknown to most, even, I think, to the Spaniards themselves. He is a soldier who died in the Cuban War that took place at the end of the 19th century between the Spanish and the Cuban insurgents; At the Battle of Cascorro it seems that the soldier Eloy Gonzalo distinguished himself in a heroic action, for which he was decorated with the silver cross, and later I find death in a military hospital, but not for the wounds of war, but for an intestinal infection, caused by the poor nutrition of the Spanish troop. In 1901 the municipality of Madrid had this statue placed in the square that then took the name of the battle in which Eloy Gonzalo distinguished himself. It is not worth coming to this square to see this statue, but surely you could see it coming to the flea market of El Rastro that just from this square begins and that takes place every Sunday morning (although the statue you may not notice it because of the stalls surrounding it).
