It’s a nice statue. Looks well made and put together well. I don’t know who the guy is or why he got a statue. But it only takes a few minutes to look at.

Very nice statue of Diego de Velazquez sitting by a side entrance (probably the original main entrance) to the Prado Muesum. A nice statue and worth a stop if you're in the area.

The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard
is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The

Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and
culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On
weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free
after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue
of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de
