We could watch it from inside our bus. Could not go closer as the traffic was too much around the roundabout. A wonderful engineering feat worth admiring. You can not miss it once you are in Vigo. Amolak Rattan Kohli Former Governor Of Mizoram

The sculpture sits in the middle of a roundabout which is unfortunate as you cannot get up close to enjoy all the detail. Better from a distance than not at all!

Not only is this a very powerful, beautiful sculpture, the engineering required to make the sculpture “alive” is amazing to see. This is a landmark of Vigo.

This monument stands tall in a busy roundabout in Vigo. It is a landmark which can be seen as you walk up Gran Via and it is worth taking a closer look. Getting a photo is difficult with traffic passing by most of the time.
