One of the most beautiful statues of Lucifer, the angel fallen from heaven, you can see in the Retiro Park in Madrid.
Go to the Retiro Park to watch one of the most beautiful stone statues of the fallen angel Lucifer.
The angel who denied serving God was cast from heaven to earth. In this pose he was depicted by the sculptor Ricardo Belver more than a century ago.
Near the statue, occult rites were often performed and the covenants gathered. In addition, it is at a topographic altitude of 666 degrees above the sea level.
The church considers the statue of the fallen angel to be a work of art, and not an embodiment of the devil, and does not protest against it.
