A beautiful example of public art, I would encourage you to go out of your way to look at this. Immediately opposite Colon, it is located in a traffic triangle and near a large metal frog statue.

I am not sure why I like this statue so much, the lady is very sensuous but also no-one else seems to notice her.

Check out the wonderfully voluptuous Botero statue, the toad statue directly to the south on Castellana is fun, and the Monumento al Descubrimiento de America is pretty great, too. Colon has a beautiful fountain and it's just a pretty spot in Madrid.

My wife & I stumbled upon this statue while walking towards Cibeles Square and we had a wonderful laugh about it. Completely unexpected, the statue grabs the attention of everyone who walks past. Truly unique.

Whenever I pass the Plaza Colon, I stop to see this beautiful statue created by the artist Fernando Botero. It really calls attention because the woman seems to be lying down on the street. Botero usually portrays overweight women.

This sculpture attracts much traffic! It is a matter of taste of course. The Botero nude woman sculpture was given as a gift by the sculptor to the city. I judge, that at least adds to the value of the busy square.

I think that the sculpture of the Nude Woman with Mirror by Fernando Botero is a beautiful work of art and the location is very good because it has plenty of traffic and one can admire it there.

Multi-story residential buildings decorated with
ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and
pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and
neighbourhood taverns are scattered across the lower
levels down every block, and here and there, there's a
cluster of tables on the sidewalk. It isn't ever
crowded, but people are always out, poking into the
tiny bakeries, hardware stores, and tobacco shops, or
