Monument to Count Ansúrez

The Monument to Count Ansúrez is an instance of public art in Valladolid, Spain. Located at the Plaza Mayor, it consists of a bronze statue of Count Pedro Ansúrez, founder of the town of Valladolid in the 11th century, topping off a stone pedestal with additional sculptural elements.

Predated by earlier failed attempts in the 19th century to erect a monument to the founder of the city, the project of the statue was entrusted in the early 20th century to Aurelio Carretero, who, having started works in January 1901, completed the cast in April 1901, using bronze donated by himself.
