  • Situated in a chaotic and busy intersection this monument is more of an afterthought. I can actually see it from my hotel room and I don't think I've seen anyone visit it. It's underwhelming even furt...  more »
  • Representation statue of Don Quixote on his horse! simple but emotional, if its creator will a tribute to Cervantes! located in Avenida de Mayo and 9 de Julio Av! 400 meters from the Obelisk!

  • This monument located at the intersection of the avenues of May and 9 July is as fantastic as the own character which illustrates. You must use a little imagination, but his originality is beyond doubt. Don Quixote is portrayed riding on Rocinante, but not as in the Plaza of Spain in Madrid, but as an appearance from nowhere, and only sees a part of the figures, giving it more drama to the scene that one imagines loading against the windmills. It is somewhat paradoxical to find this effigy in the middle of a dense and urban transit in which the character created by Cervantes is more absurd and anachronistic. Very beautiful monument, must see it walk for 9 de Julio.

  • In 1980 Buenos Aires turned four hundred years (1580-1980); on that occasion the Government of Spain donated a monument to Don Quixote whose author is Andrés Tena and which was inaugurated by the Queen Sofía de España. It is located at the intersection of the Avenida de Mayo and 9 de Julio.
