We saw this monument soon after exiting the cruise ship port. It's pk, but nothing special although I'm sure it means more to the Spanish. I liked the padlock statue near it

So many reviewers note how impressive the Monumento de la Constitution de 1812 is. Yes, it is! We really loved spotting and exploring moments and columns like this on in many places in Spain. Do take time to notice the detail -- it is stunning.

We walked here from the cruiseship it was very simple. The place is nice there were a lot of school children around and everybody wanted to try out their English on us. Very cool worth seeing.

Much historic significance in a casual city thoroughfare. We were there when school finished so many parents and young ones around.

Built to commemorate the anniversary of the constitution of 1812, the is a structure column with many items of the constitution around the monument. There's allegory to war, peace, agriculture, industry and the people supporting the constitution sitting atop the column.
