General Alvear Monument General Alvear Monument General Alvear Monument General Alvear Monument

This monument was erected to honor General Alvear for having been essential in the turn out of San Martin’s plan, and for his valuable cooperation when creating the Regiment “Granaderos a Caballo”. He was the Assembly president in 1813, then Director of the United Provinces of Rio de la Plata; his last position in public administration was Plenipotentiary Minister in the United States, where he died in 1852. It is one of the most valuable and emblematic monuments in the city, in this key spot in Recoleta. It Commemorates the Ituzaingo Battle where Brazil fought the coalition between Argentina and Uruguay. The work is attributed to the sculptor Antonio Bourdelle, disciple and collaborator of Auguste Rodin. It is erected on a granite pedestal (by Bustillo) 13m high on which there stands a horse made completely of bronze. On the angles of its base, there are three figures that stand for “Liberty”, “Strength” and “Eloquence”.
