Palma – Rubén Darío Statue

I must admit that I’ve never heard of Rubén Darío, but after some on-line reading, I’ve discovered that he was a Nicaraguan poet who helped to develop the Modernismo literary movement. Which I hadn’t heard of either. Anyway, everything is a learning experience and this statue was sculpted by Antoni Oliver in 1951 and is made of marble. It has a prominent location near to the Palma Cathedral and there is at least some relevant as Darío came to Mallorca twice. And that’s, well, all I can really add here…
