A historic monument
This monument is located in the Plaza of December 18, just in front of the Bastion and the Porte de la Trinidad. It was erected in commemoration of the dead in the battle against the English troops of Lord Wellington. It is a garden complex, with the remains of walls at the back and a stone sculpture in the middle, representing a naked soldier who is being helped by another and, behind them, a huge cross. Surrounding the monument are several bronze sculptures of the evangelists, which served as models for the ones in the Basilica del Valle de los Caidos.
