Monumento a Don Blas de Lezo y Olavarrieta is located in Plaza de Colon which has quite a bit of historical interest. It has several points of interest in it, and several monuments like this one. The most interesting thing about this monument is the background of the man standing on top of the rock! He was a military personality who participated in a number of naval battles during which he suffered several life threatening wounds. He lost his left eye and leg, and suffered continuing immobility to his right arm for some time! He probably suffered other injuries too, all of which made him quite famous. It is amazing he managed to continue in his chosen career for such a long time, but he did become well known as a symbol of courage and bravery in Spanish history. This area is worth a visit, as it has such a wealth of history, and it is a lovely spot as well.
