Plaza de la Victoria

Plaza de la Victoria is on Calle Victoria, just before one gets to the Church of La Victoria. It is a little park with jacaranda trees, orange trees, palm trees and rose bushes. In the middle of the park is a fountain with a statue of Maternity. There are various sculptures of children done in bronze and stone, which recreates children's games, and these were created by the artist Mario Amaya in 1962. The plaza is also affectionately called the Jardin de los Monos (Garden of the Monkeys), because in the past there was a cage with monkeys. Nearby is a statue of Miguel de los Rios, who was a famous flamenco dancer.
