  • For its heroic defense of the population of Tarifa during the aforementioned War of Spanish Independence against French troops, the city pays homage to him in a monument that stands at a point of its old walled perimeter, right at the encounter of the street General Copons with Independence Street. Raised on a high pedestal, his bronze figure appears standing, dressed in his military attire, holding with his right hand a card - the one sent by General Leval to surrender the square - and with his left hand on the handle of his saber.

  • It is not impressive but it has its own meaning, because it represents the one who forced Napoleon's troops to abandon the siege of Tarifa. For the locals a hero, who in the statue appears proud and winning.
