"I am Ruy Díaz, el Cid Campeador of Vivar, who was born in good time". This sculptural landmark is the work of the Valencian artist Francisco Catalá Blanes, who donated the mold to the neighborhood of Vivar in 1963. Its simplicity sends back the hero to his human scale. It is the first of the many Cid's representations you'll find along your travel.
