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.

  • Beautiful memorial to Cervantes. Must stop to see, great photo opp with Don Quixote and Pancho statues. Check out the olive trees too.

  • One of the interesting monuments to see in Madrid is that to the famous Spanish writer, Cervantes located at Plaza de Espana on Calle de la Princesa Street. The monument designed by Spanish architects Rafael Martinez Zapatero and Pedro Muguruza and mostly sculpted between 1925-30 by Lorenzo Coullaut Valera. This is a nice monument standing 22 meters tall and featuring interesting sculptural arrangements atop a large pillar and around the monument. Most interesting is that of the seated Cervantes. He appears to be watching two bronze figures at a pool just below. These are the beloved characters Don Quixote and his faithful squire, Sancho Panza. Fans of the Spanish novel, Don Quixote de la Manche will quite enjoy seeing Monumento Cervantes and can conveniently do so before or after sightseeing at important area attractions like Palacio Real, Plaza de Orient or Museo Carralbo, which are all quite near to this location.

  • This is a huge memorial, you only get the impact when you are there against it. The grounds and gardens are immaculately kept, and dressed with flowers and nice grass, the pathways are kept clean. No sign of flea markets, maybe because it was a weekday? Or they have been moved, either way looks great!!!

  • Plaza de España, which is basically Spain square, has a nice monument dedicated to (one of) the most famous and prominent Spanish writers. If you have read Don Quixote and want to give your respects - this must-go place

  • Beautiful. Magic.
