Planned to be built to commemorate the writers work and his 300th death anniversary in 1916, a contest was drawn for the design of the monument. The work of the monument started in 1925 and was open to Public in 1929.

Additional changes were made in the 1930’s and today, the 22 metre tall monument is one of the iconic places in Madrid.

The monument consists of a statue of Cervantes overlooking the bronze statues of Don Quixote and his faithful squire, Sancho Panza- the writer’s favourite characters.

  • Nice park but the market place takes away the park-like ambiance. Too busy place to have a quite visit.

  • The size of the monument is impressive, even sorrounded by big buildings looks magestic and beautiful with fountains front and back. Don't miss enjoying the park and the fountain near the Gran Via, towards the back of the monument.

  • You can take a photo of the nice architecture here.

  • A very big and nice statue of Cervantes and his two heroes. Impressive and very popular with picture takers. (Difficult to get a picture without a tourist trying to climb up on the horses)

  • Nice monument but the flea market around takes away a bit from it.
