One of the most beautiful statues of Lucifer, the angel fallen from heaven, you can see in the Retiro Park in Madrid.
How to see the statue of Lucifer 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.

How to do?

1. Find the statue of Lucifer in the Retiro Park, among the alleys with roses.
2. Look at it from different angles. Just do not stay in the shadow of the statue! It bodes ill. At least, the legend says so ...

Where to do?
