On your way to the Paseo del Prado museum and the whole area please stop a few minutes at this monument. Not big in size but big in significance. I liked it, it gives you a moment of solemnity. Thumbs up!

This is a poignant, unusual and interesting memorial which is located just north of the Prado. You have to cross a road to get close to it so it can easily be passed by without noticing.
