  • A striking bronze statue. You like or not. There are no half-measures. Located at the intersection of Avenida de Mayo and 9 de Julio. Given by the Queen Sofía de España in 1980 for the 400 years of the 2nd founding of the city. It was designed by the sculptor Aurelio Teno which made numerous statues of Don Quixote. A much debated work. Irrelevant to the Argentines, also stated. It was to apply for its location in Plaza Spain, but without success. Striking the white base where Don Quixote, representing the plains of La Mancha is located. In my personal opinion, the work captures the spirit of rarity and madness of the character.

  • This is one of the pictures that are worth! If you are in the Center and is a lover of the book, include in your script. It's a beautiful monument, more important that any general responsible for another revolution useless against a windmill!

  • Although it does not seem to me a very attractive sculpture there's no denying the originality of its conception. If you are passing through there it is worth approaching to observe it.

His pedestal of white concrete and stone represents the plain of La Mancha
