This monument is close to the Opera House and Royal Palace. It is surrounded by benches and shade trees which makes it a nice place to just relax if you're touring in the summer heat.

Luis Noval Ferrao known as the Cape Noval was a soldier killed in Morocco in heroic circumstances rendering him an ongoing symbol of Spanish patriotism. Hence the statue which is rather nice as war memorials go.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
