‪This statue stands in tribute to Eloy Gonzalo García, a soldier of the Spanish army, hero of the Cuba's Civil War in 1898. The sculpture was made in 1897 by Segovia sculptor Aniceto Marinas, a pedestal by architect Lopez Sallaberry. The monument was unveiled by King Alfonso XIII in 1902. It is located in the Plaza de Cascorro, a bit away of the way from the main attractions of Madrid. A place worth visiting in Madrid, in one of the most traditional neighborhoods in Madrid, where you can see the famous Rastro d Madrid on Sunday.‬

‪The Statue of Eloy Gonzalo is quite a moving monument to a simple soldier typifying some Spanish qualities. He was involved in the so called War of Cuba, in the 19th century. He set fire to the houses in the town of Cascorro in order for the enemies not to capture them and take shelter in them. He was fatally wounded in the process. The Plaza where the statue is located bears the name of the Cuban town. Also in this area a Market is held every Sunday, the Market of El Rastro, where there are numerous open stalls selling a myriad of useful and not so great things. Worth a visit.‬

‪This statue stands in tribute to Eloy Gonzalo García, a distinguished Spanish soldier who fought in the War of Cuba of 1895-97. His main legacy was an act of heroism when at one stage his military unit became bogged down and in an act of desperation, volunteered to attacked the enemy position which he did successfully by setting the position on fire, surviving the attack to everyone's surprise. In the process earning himself the Silver Cross for Military Merit, pensioned with 7.50 pesetas per month.

The statue depicts the his assault on the enemy position. Gonzalo is striding forward, torch in his right hand and a box of explosives in underneath his left arm, with a rifle slung over his right shoulder.

It's located a bit out of the way from the main attractions of Madrid, but worth a look if in the area.‬

‪This statue is of a soldier carrying a rifle, a sword, what looks like a box of ammunition and a torch in his hand. It lies at the centre of a square in La Latina.‬

‪A realistic bronze monument of a man carrying a flaming baton in his hand and s rifle on his back. He was clearly a hero during the 19th century. As you head South down the hill he becomes more imposing.‬

‪The Statue Of Eloy Gonzalo is a really lovely looking and eye catching statue that is located in a nice little plaza we chanced upon as we were wandering around the eclectic and vibrant Lavapies neighbourhood.
The statue is a landmark feature in a square and area that has some great architecture and innumerable pubs,bars and restaurants.
The statue is well detailed and looks absolutely fantastic,on a roasting hot day I took some excellent photos with clear blue sky in the background.
It's easy to locate, we jumped the metro down to stop La Latina were we walked across to Plaza De Cascorro in the Lavapies neighbourhood.
Well worth a visit. ‬

‪This is a very life-like statue of a soldier equipped with a rifle as if heading to conflict. The square where it is located is picturesque and relaxed with outdoor dining.‬

‪Sat at the tables facing the statue. Curious as to the history and Googled it. Once through the Spanish sites we found the fascinating history. We were here on a Weekday so no market, though an interesting area.‬
