A famous statue
This is another of the most famous statues in the city of Valladolid, along with that of Jose Zorrilla. Both were made by the same sculptor, Nicolas Fernandez de la Oliva, and this was unveiled on September 29, 1877. The statue of Miguel de Cervantes is situated in the University Square, the perfect spot for it. It has a stunning backdrop, with the Cathedral of Valladolid, the church of Santa Maria la Antigua and, of course, the university nearby.
