San Servando and San Germán Statues in Constitution Plaza in Cádiz, Spain

In front of Puertas de Tierra at Constitution Plaza are two tall fluted marble columns with Corinthian capitals. On top are early 18th century statues sculpted by Andrea Andreoli. They are the likeness of Saints Servandus and Germanus. In Spanish, their names are San Servando and, shown here, San Germán. These two Roman soldiers were martyred near Cádiz in 305 AD during the Christian persecution by Diocletian, the Emperor of the Roman Empire. They have been patron saints of Cádiz since 1617
