Santiponce Itálica


An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Monument to Cervantes and the Two Maidens


This magnificent pyramid with mezzo-relievos of Cervantes and Two Maidens was made by the sculptor Manuel Castaño Beza. It commemorates the time when Miguel de Cervantes stayed in Castiblanco on his way to Extremadura to work as a royal tax collector. He spent the night in the town and named Castilblanco at the beginning of his novel The Two Maidens, placing its name on the map.

It is a unique work that brings a breath of fresh air to our town and welcomes visitors at the Cruz Alta entrance to the town.
