  • It is an imposing sculpture, and you can see a half distance. Worth a photograph with Don Quixote of la mancha

  • It is located on the corner of Mayo and lime. It is work of the Andalusian (Villanueva del Duque) sculptor Aurelio Teno. It is 1980 and was a gift from the Spanish Government to the city of Buenos Aires by the 400 th anniversary of its foundation. The pedestal of the monument is of white concrete and stone, and represents the plain of La Mancha. The figures of Don Quixote and Rocinante seem to be born of this pedestal, only their media bodies. Don Quixote brandishes his sword. The author has made other QUIXOTES and sculptures, of which I remember a "monument to el Aguador", in the Plaza of the Romanilla, the Centre of Granada
