About Estatua Felipe Iii, Madrid

The bronze statue of King Philip III of Spain riding on his horse, has the most intriguing story. During the Franco dictatorship of Spain, the statue- like many others around the city, was destroyed. Several pieces of the statue scattered on the plaza along with small bones. The vandalism was stopped immediately since they believed that this was a sign from the guardian spirit of Felipe III.

The bones were studied to reveal that they belonged to small birds who took shelter in the statue but could not find a way out! Take a walk here to see yet another of city’s many stories and to admire the artwork of the statue.
