  • MONUMENT To THE HORSES OF VIGO BEAUTIFUL SCULPTURE OF OLIVEIRA At THE ENTRANCE OF THE CITY The Monument of The Horses of Vigo will be the first thing that can be seen of the center if one arrives to the city from Ourense or Madrid. The entry in Vigo of The Horses is of the sculptor Juan Jose Oliveira and placed in the year 1991. It Is engraved in the memory of all the Vigo: This impressive sculptural ensemble reaches 18 m in height, and since it occupied its site, on a huge pond in the Praza of Spain, it has not ceased to marvel at Vigo and visitors. This emblematic sculpture of Vigo, which weighs 40 tons, represents a herd of five horses ascending into the sky by a waterfall. The sculptor Oliveira Is known as the Lord of the Horses, because it Is the central theme of his work, which he liked to represent them as moved by an intrinsic energy that takes them off the ground in complicated roe. The work of the Praza of Spain, place of entry to the city of Vigo, is central to understand the artistic trajectory of this great sculptor.

  • Without a doubt, the most emblematic sculpture of the city of Vigo, located in the Plaza de España, beautiful sculpture of 5 horses climbing up to the sky by a spiral ramp, particularly the sculpture that I like the city next to the reders.
