Controversial Francoist monument located in the Plaza Duque de Pastrana was inaugurated in 1946.

This monument pays homage to the fallen of the old town of Chamartín de la Rosa during the bloody Civil War.

MONUMENT TO THE MARQUIS OF DUERO

This monument, inaugurated in 1885, is located in the Gregorio Marañón traffic circle and honors the Army General Manuel Gutiérrez de la Concha.

This character was of great importance for his strategies in the first two Carlist wars and a large part of the third, where he was killed.
