    It is located in the square of loyalty, a stone's throw from the Neptune fountain, and a few meters from the Ritz hotel. This extraordinary monument overwhelmed by the feeling of sadness that surrounds to him which contemplates it. The cry of silence that accompanies it, immune to the noise of the Paseo del Prado. It is surrounded by a fence that prevents the uncontrolled access. There are kept the ashes of captains Daoiz and Velarde, Lieutenant Ruíz and other 48 heroes errands independence war shoot on-site by the general Murat, President of the French army. It is the work of the architect Isidro González Vázquez, the inauguration took place on May 2, 1840, coinciding with the 30th anniversary of the war against Napoleon. On 22 November 1985, Juan Carlos I reopened the monument, going to dedicate themselves to all the fallen by Spain settling a votive flame that perennially burns.

    Very good Memorial to those who gave their lives by Spain, located near the Museum of the prado, which is very exciting, always has a flame lit and there are the ashes of the fallen that on May 2.

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
