    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.

    Andalusian sculptor Aurelio Teno, this homage to the protagonist of the adventures of the ingenious hidalgo don Quixote of la Mancha, written by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra at the beginning of the 17TH century, arrived in Buenos Aires in 1980 as a gift from the Spanish Government on the occasion of the 400 th anniversary of the city. His pedestal of white concrete and stone represents the plain of La Mancha.
