Arco de la Victoria, Madrid: 1 reviews and 3 photos


The Victory Arch wasn?t built until 1956. Its construction was at the request of Franco to acknowledge the victory by the Nationalist Army over the Republicans during the Spanish Civil War. On top of the 39 metre structure is a chariot and four horses. There is apparently a room inside the arch which has the plans for the arch. Unfortunately the Arch is not open to the public.

Address: Plaza de la Moncloa

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
