Monument to Moret (Cádiz)

The Monument to Moret is an instance of public art in Cádiz, Spain. Designed by Agustín Querol, it consists of a bronze statue of Liberal politician Segismundo Moret (who enjoyed the honorary recognition as "favourite son" of the City of Cádiz) put on top of a pedestal displaying elaborated allegorical reliefs.

A noted 19th century politician (later prime minister in the early 20th century), Moret played a key role as Overseas Minister in the abolition of slavery in Puerto Rico in 1870. Funded via popular subscription, the design was awarded to Agustín Querol. The foundation stone was laid in February 1908.
