Two Large Statues at Atocha Station

When you exit the Atocha Station, near the exit door you will find two very large statues of the heads of a very young girl. The sculptor was the realist artist Antonio Lopez. They portray one of his granddaughters. The one with the eyes open is called Dia and the one with her eyes closed is called Noche. These statues were installed in 2008.

At the Atocha Station, there are other things to discover. 1. The oasis (tropical garden) environment in the old (former) train shed. 2. The memorial work to the 191 victims of the 11-M (March 11, 2004) train bombing. All the trains which were bombed had Atocha as its destination. 3. Two large statues by Antonio Lopez of one of his granddaughters awake and asleep. 4. And incidentally, It is the origin and destination for 1. Renfe trains including high speed AVE, 2. metro/subway service and 3. Cercanias (regional rapid rail service.)
