  • Frequently passing through this place, for a long time that I did not stop to see this arch more than close. The arch reminiscent of arches of ancient Rome, conquerors of much of Europe. Currently this very rough square with large damage, much carelessness by the municipal administration.

  • Magnificent triumphal arch that gives access to Madrid by the authorship of A Coruna.fue built to commemorate the victory in the bloody Spanish civil war. Follows the model of the Roman arch that is established in the praise and glory of the generals in the vast Roman Empire. Is crowned by a beautiful chariot. The unfortunate thing is the State of absolute abandonment of the said monument. Only quote, including broken bottles scattered all over the ground, graffiti, and waste in general. And I ask myself: where are responsible for his guardianship and custody?

  • The monument in itself is very impressive, but as it stands in the middle of a very busy traffic square/motor way exit you cannot get close. I would not recommend to come here only for this.
  • It's constructed to commemorate the victory for the fascist Franco regime.
  • It suffers from lack of maintenance and cleaning
  • It's very nice but the place is a little bit dirty
  • Monument to the fascist victory at the peak of dictatorship.
