full of people trying to get a pic with her, maybe you should wait your turn, where there are many other special sculptures around

Lovely little statue on a park bench, overlooking a small pond. Mostly there is a queue to get a ‘selfie’ with Mafalda, but not on this rainy afternoon in November.

Quite a surprise to find Argentine heroine Mafalda sitting on a park bench in Oviedo but her presence commemorates the presentation of the prestigious Principe de Asturias prize to Quino, her creator. For her birthplace go to San Telmo in Buenos Aires

We just love Mafalda, we always take picture by the bench with her every time we visit Oviedo. The statue fits perfectly in an environment like the Campo de San Fransisco.

A lovely little statue of Mafalda in the park, a complete surprise and a wonderful "find" for those of us who are fans from days of old...

Situated in the great park named San Francisco on a bench all by herself waiting for you sit next to her and have a photo taken. Great park. This is a must visit if you're ever in the center of Oviedo.

The best homage is that every time I walked around the area, little children were taking turs to sit on the bench by Mafalda...the best possible homage to that great character created by Quino!

If you like Mafalda then you should totally go to Oviedo. There's her sculpture in the park, so you can sit with her and take as many photos as you want or can do. And besides it's in nice area. You can make a picnic...More
