Photos of my trip to Madrid (5): Sculptures

I was in Madrid from February 23 to March 02, 2022. I immortalized hundreds of photos for you, my dear friends and visitors. I will publish them in articles for 6 days. I hope you like them.

Madrid is famous for its works of art, it is a city of art. The sculptures are present everywhere in the city, in the main arteries, in the squares, in the public gardens and even on the buildings.
Impossible not to notice, in every corner of Madrid, many sculptures dedicated to mythological characters, great figures of Spanish history, artists or even animals.
If you are visiting Madrid, plan visits to the city’s famous statues and sculptures. But look everywhere for little-known sculptures that are sometimes very interesting works of art.

In the Plaza de Jacinto Benavente there is a statue that represents a sweeper with his brush in his hand, in full work “Madrid Barrendero 1960”. it is probably one of the most photographed statues in Madrid.
The work was produced by Félix Hernando García in 2001.
Pedro Calderón de la Barca sculpture(1600-1681), Spanish poet and playwright.
