This is one of the most important statues in the city of Valladolid, located in the Plaza de Colon. It dates back to the year 1891, and was made by the sculptor Antonio Susillo and cast by Thiebaut Freres. It was initially located in Cathedral Square in Havana, where it remained until 1898, when Cuban independence meant that it was returned to Spain. It shows Columbus kneeling on a boat carrying the cross.
Everything in life is art, but a statue that blends with nature is called Beauty. This lovely statue is the work of Edward Square and you can see it in the Campo Grande in Valladolid, a park filled with art, flora and fauna. This statue is a tribute to a known family of photographers, the Muñoz. It was a family of street photographers highlighting Vicente Muñoz, who would become a Campo Grande official photographer for over 50 years. As you see in this corner, the statue shows you a photographer on the verge of having his photo taken and his right hand raised as if to say: Look at the birdie. If you want to sit, he will be happy to take a picture on this beautiful place called Valladolid, Campo Grande.
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.
For me it is the most representative image of the city of Valladolid. Who could best represent their city than one of its most famous people? As you will have noticed it's the statue of writer Jose Zorrilla Valladolid, in Plaza Zorrilla. it's made of bronze by designer Aurelio Rodriguez Carter, who also created the statue of Cervantes. José Zorrilla is the author of the play "Don Juan Tenorio" and the city of Valladolid, after his death in 1893, decided to pay homage to him with this statue. It is attached to his muse, a winged woman and a lyre.
This statue is one of the least-known in the city of Valladolid, located just in front of the main entrance of the Academia de Caballeria, at the beginning of Paseo Zorrilla. It is the monument to the hunters of Alcantara, and is a homage to the heroism of the Alcantara regiment in the Moroccan campaign. The soldiers are dressed in different uniforms. It was sculpted by Mariano Benlliure, and unveiled in 1931.
