It's fantastic if you're an art lover, but for the regular tourist, it's not really a tourist attraction. It's a roundabout, you can't walk around or even cross the street, as it is in a busy intersection. Great to look at while driving

Impressive art in round about by hotel RIU. At night it appears steam comes around the horses making it look mysterious.

Very beautiful art piece right on the side of the road! You may need to take a tour that stops here, or risk traffic, but it is beautiful up close!

Great for lovers of arts and sculpture. Fantastic place to get a picture. Probably one of my favorite ever sculptures.

There is always quinceañeras taking their memory pictures with their big dresses, I understand why. Is very unusual to find great sculptures surrounded by grass & fountains. Great spot to visit.

Nice statue and impressive up close. I wouldn't have travelled to see it but was fun to check it out while waiting for our Uber.
