Remark: * Monument to Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra was designed by architects Rafael Martínez Zapatero and
Pedro Muguruza and sculptor Lorenzo Coullaut Valera. Most of the monument was built between 1925 and 1930. It
was finished between 1956 and 1957 by Federico Coullaut-Valera Mendigutia, the son of the original sculptor. The
tower portion of the monument includes a stone sculpture of Cervantes, which overlooks bronze sculptures of Don
Quixote and Sancho Panza. Next to the tower, there are two stone representations of Don Quixote's "true love", one
as the simple peasant woman Aldonza Lorenzo, and one as the beautiful, imaginary Dulcinea del Toboso.
