  • In Padrón (La Coruña) is this monument to its most illustrious adoptive son, the writer Camilo José Cela. Opened in 2004, located in the Paseo del Espolón in this town, it is the work of Manuel Ferreiro Badía and consists of a pedestal whose upper part is a seated statue of Don Camillo. As you can see in the photo, the two spheres of stone located in the front of the pedestal cause a visual effect that inevitably evokes one of the strongest obsessions of the literary Nobel Prize, with what can be conclude that, to a certain extent, the monument it has justice done.

  • It can be that it was a very good writer but I have very bad memory of it, proud, arrogant and very poorly educated
