Camino De Santiago - Pictures - Madrid

On my last day in Spain I walked the tourist bus route taking pictures of statues, fountains, buildings, and gardens.  The shear number of statues was overwhelming.

Plaza Mayor.
Carlos III.
A symbol of protest - the Guy Fawkes mask.
Fuente de Cibeles, Madrid
Fuente de Neptuno, Madrid
Lago de el Retiro.  Monument to Alfonso XIII
Plaza de Colon.  Monument to Christopher Columbus.
Metropolis Building, Madrid
Egyptian Temple of Debod,  a gift to Spain.
Don Quixote and Sancho Panza.
Plaza de Oriente and the Royal Palace of Madrid.
Shiny butt.
These pictures and many more have been added to my 2011-06 Madrid Google Photos album.


  1. OMG....Timing!! Madrid was on the Today Show this morning! And that last statue...another blogger I know has it on his blog header! He's standing next to it and looks just like the guy! Too funny!

  2. KSam: Yeah ... I planned it that way ... yeah ... right.
