Although this statues is not in Barcelona, it is one of the most iconic statues in Spain so I thought it would be necessary to include. The Philips III statue is located at the center of Plaza Mayor, Madrid. The statue was commissioned by Philip III and was later built by Jean Boulogne in the late 1500. During the Franco regime, this statue was also destroyed. However the vandals recognized the remains of Phillip fall out of the hallow statue and decided to no longer destroy it.
