This is another majestic work of art commissioned by King Carlos III to ennoble the city.

Ventura Rodríguez came up with the design while Roberto Michel and Francisco Gutiérrez carried out the work. It's surrounded by some of the city's most important historic buildings and it has become a favorite symbolic landmark for madrileños. The fans of Real Madrid football club gather here to celebrate their team's victories.
