After passing through Carrer Zaragoza, a block from Tetuan Square and the post office building, you will find yourself in Independence square (Plaza Independencia on the map). This place was the old city gate, and the name of the square was given in memory of the struggle of the Spanish people against the Napoleonic occupation. On may 4, 1924, the statue was crowned in the squareThe virgin Mary of Ledo, a relic of the city's patron Saint.
Surprisingly, this landmark religious event for the city was commemorated not by a chapel, as you might think, but by a purely utilitarian structure - a lantern. A memorial plaque on the base commemorates the coronation.
The monumental lighting device was created by the architect Francisco Maristany (Francisco Maristany) in 1929.
