Is it on the Ingles,in Santiago, one of the arches in the little park near the roundabout with the big Pilgrim statue ? After you've walked down a long road past the Centro Libredón ?

OK smart people :) BEFORE reaching the statue of the pilgrim on the roundabout you pass this chap to whom the park is dedicated. Who is he, where was he born and why was he important n Spanish history? Not that I'm mean and reluctant to send the whisky or anything :)

Pablo Iglesias, father of a famous singer - no - 'father of Spanish Socialism' and labour leader. - born in Ferrol in 1850. After his father died the family walked to Madrid where his mother had to beg for a living. He trained as a printer (what is it about printing as a trade that it produces so many revolutionary types?). He then became a journalist writing for the International, journal of the International Workers Association and was often in prison for his political activism. He founded The Socialist newspaper, and worked as its printer when all other sources of income failed! Sounds like a cool guy.
''Iglesias was one of the best propagandists among Spanish socialist idealists; few workers' leaders wrote so much of interest. Characterised by vehement defense and furious attack, his works make an ethically coherent call for regeneration and hope.''
Thank you, Wikipedia.

We don't drink whiskey, thanks, so will settle for a bar of fairly traded chocolate, or even a tea-bag!!!!

Many, various, and continuing.
Here is my Challenge Photo, which I posted elsewhere but I´m not sure what´s become of it...

Where is this beautiful guy, and who is he, and what´s he supposed to be doing?

Here's another monument.....
Where is it, to whom and why is that person special?
I won't promise a bottle of whisky, but you'll get a nice glow if you know the answer!

Reb -

Is it over top of a doorway on the building opposite the cathedral- Pazo de Roxoi? And it's Santiago Matamoros, who while riding his horse, is cutting the heads off Moors.

Bridget and Peter,
it looks like Niki de Saint Phalle but not quite anyway, and where and why in Spain. She was affected by the work of Gaudi, of course but...
I don´t drink whisky either...

I didn't know Niki de Saint Phalle so thanks for a very interesting few minutes googling her. Interesting!

Also more minutes trying to find out who did produce the monument pictured. It was a Gallego sculptor called Perez Porto. Apparently he also did some signing on the Camino Frances (Pedrafita-Santiago). Not having been on the Camino Frances I don't know it - does anyone have any photos?

I won't reveal the answers yet.
