In the centre of Plaza Nueva is a large bronze equestrian statue of Fernando III, the ‘Holy Conqueror of the city’. The square was at one time named after him before being called Plaza Nueva. The base of the statue has four notable figures – Alfonso X the Wise (King of Castile, Leon and Galicia), Garcia Perez de Vargas (a Castilian Knight), Ramon Bonifaz (first Admiral of Castile D.) and Don Remondo (Archbishop).
