  • It is a depressing sign of lack of continuity in a good initiative, and collective lack of respect to the memory of the past. The initiative of building a pantheon of Illustres ("Men" is illustrative of the era in which it was thought) is very positive, those which help to give weight to the trajectory of a country. But it was never completed, and actually not planned with sufficient ambition. The building that is seen is an incomplete fragment of what must have been, and is a cold and empty space that hardly anyone visits (inevitably comes to mind the poet Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer: what single stay dead!), in which there are only 7 funerary monuments (a (OME - that Yes - with magnificent sculptures in white marble of Mariano Benlliure) dedicated to so many men of State (7 men), all from the 19th century. I recommend not lead any non Spanish visitor to see the "Pantheon", because it is the finding of a great collective failure. In countries that have similar initiatives (but really) are remembered in the Pantheon numerous illustrious figures from centuries ago until today, and together with illustrious parliamentarians and military there are poets, writers, inventors, etc. That Yes: is a good point to national heritage keep them care and open for visitors that do not arrive. There's plenty to visit in Madrid before this Pantheon, so I do not recommend to devote time to see it.

  • The Pantheon of illustrious men respond to two of the constants of end of the century: the historicist architecture and funerary sculpture. Here lie thirteen illustrious figures of the Spanish political and military history in graves made by renowned sculptors. The Pantheon of illustrious men of Madrid (Spain), is a building style neobizantino the work of the architect Fernando Arbós and Tremanti. It is located in the Pacific area.
