Don Álvaro in the night / Don Álvaro de noche
This is a monument dedicated to don Álvaro de Bazán, who was a famous spanish admiral. He fought in Lepanto, and was to command the Armada in the projected invasion of England, but died some time before the campaign began. He gives its name to a spanish frigate.
The statue, by the spanish sculptor Mariano Benlliure, is in front to the City Hall (Casa de la Villa), which, by the way, is going to move to a new location in short (so they say). I'll show you soon the new municipal premises. Well, "new" in a sense... you'll see.
La escultura, obra de Mariano Benlliure, se encuentra situada frente a la Casa de la Villa (el Ayuntamiento); por cierto, el Ayuntamiento va a cambiar de sede en breve (o eso dicen). Pronto os mostraré la nueva sede municipal...bueno, "nueva" en cierto sentido...ya veréis.
