Monument to the Man of the Field
In Calle del Romero (at its confluence with Calle de las Cercas and on the way to the Church from the town square) we find a sculpture, modern and singular, made by Pilar Cuenca for the City Council of Alameda del Valle in 1997. It is a tribute to the people of the countryside and, by extension, to the customs that characterized the life of yesteryear. They are here symbolized by a man wearing a blanket over his shoulder, the traditional rod, a beret and shoes with albarcas. Your visit is a good time to remember some customs not so distant and very present in our town, remember, a great farming tradition.
At the foot of the statue you can read a verse by Vicente Alexandre:
On this lonely peak I look at you
fields that you will never return to my eyes
immense sun stone: whole world
and the nightingale so weak that in
its edge bewitches him.
