The Arco de la Victoria was built in the 1950’s and is more popularly known as Moncloa Gate. The arc was designed by Modesto Lopez Otero and Pascual Bravo Sanfeliu and marks the victory of France during the Spanish Civil War.

The arc stands at a height of 130 feet and has Latin inscriptions that carry the story of the victory. The sculpture on top of the arc consists of a sculpture of a chariot driven by Minerva and is the highlight of the arc. A walk around the monument is pleasant especially during early evenings.

  • The monument in itself is very impressive, but as it stands in the middle of a very busy traffic square/motor way exit you cannot get close. I would not recommend to come here only for this.

  • It's constructed to commemorate the victory for the fascist Franco regime.

  • It suffers from lack of maintenance and cleaning

  • It's very nice but the place is a little bit dirty

  • Monument to the fascist victory at the peak of dictatorship.
