Córdoba. Plaza de los Capuchinos

In the 18th century, Cordoba registered a large implant of religious orders, being the most popular amongst them all, the “Franciscan Capuchins”, of which “Fray Diego José de Cádiz” was a member, who inspired the popular monument of the “Cristo de los Desagravios y Misericordia” also known as the “Cristo de los Faroles” (Christ of the Lanterns), created by “Juan Navarro León” in 1794. It is an awe-inspiring sight specially at night time, when it is lit up by the lanterns that surround it.

Excellent! Especially with the girl and umbrella at the edge.
