Monument to Simón Bolívar (Madrid)

Simón Bolívar or the Monument to Simón Bolívar is an instance of public art located in Madrid, Spain. Dedicated to Simón Bolívar "el Libertador", key figure in the emancipation of several Latin American nations, it consists of a bronze equestrian statue put on a stone pedestal.

It is the successful attempt of a series of previously failed initiatives intending to erect a monument dedicated to Bolívar in Madrid, tracing back in time to 1922, including a mammoth 100-metre high discarded project by Juan de Ávalos.
