Churruca Obelisk

Formerly located in the Plaze de Armas, this fountain - obelisk was erected in 1811 at the petition of Francisco Javier Abadía, commander-in-chief of Galicia, to commemorate the heroic efforts of brigadier Cosme Damián Churruca at the battle of Trafalgar. On a square pedestal, a victory column is supported with a narrowing cross-section and is topped by a cinerary urn.
