benavides monument

The walkway from the arch of the centuries leads you to this monument. Benavides monument is the centerpiece of the raised open rotunda where small elephants statues (see the smaller photo)stand at the edges. Four lions guard the foot of the monument, each lion holding a shield with a coat of arms.

PS. I want to thank all of you for visiting my blog, sorry if i cant respond to your comments... i have been very busy and will stay busy until the end of the month. I wont be able to visit your blogs as well, but will try to when i have the time. But i'll still try to post photos everyday.
