38 Fallen Angel Statue at Buen Retiro Park in Madrid, Spain

Inspired by John Milton’s “Paradise Lost,” sculptor Ricardo Bellver created a statue of Lucifer’s expulsion from heaven in 1877 for Spain’s National Exhibition of Fine Arts. In 1885, a bronze version was erected on a pedestal within a fountain at Buen Retiro Park. This image of Satan is located within the Rosaleda Gardens. Some people claim the 23 foot Fuente del Ángel Caído is the world’s only public monument to the Devil.
