Located below Templo De Debod is Monumento A Los Caidos Del Cuartel De La Montana ,a most unique Monument to view.
The work of sculptor Joaquin Vaquero Turcios and unveiled in 1972 ,the monument depicts a fallen figure of a defender of the mountain barracks during the Spanish Civil War, its a very photogenic monument and well worth checking out if you're in the area and easy to locate along Calle Del Profesor M Almagro Basch in the Casa De Campo neighbourhood.

Monumento a los Caidos del Cuartel de la Montana is a historic, yet controversial monument. It has to do with an uprising during the late 1930s Spanish Civil War, but also it is connected to some previous history of the site. The sculpture, which is quite modernist, showing the mutilated body of a soldier, is meant to honour those who fell during the uprising, and was installed during the dictatorship of Franco. It is located on a lower level, just before the Egyptian Templo de Debod in the Parque de la Montana. This is good place to visit, only a few minutes from Principe Pio train station.

Monument dedicated to the spanyards of the nationalist side that defenden the former barracks located here at the begining of the civil War. They where butchered after they surrendered after several days of fighting

This monument commemorates the two day Siege of the Montaña barracks, which marked the beginnings of the Spanish Civil War. The monument was created by Joaquín Vaquero Turcios and inaugurated in 1972, in memory of the men who died in the defence. It monument is a bronze sculpture of a figure representing the mutilated body of a man mutilated in the foreground of a wall built in the form of ground bags.

The sculpture is hard to miss if you're visiting Temple of Debod, but otherwise, it's not worth the effort. It's a too modernist for me.

Heading over to the unbelievably beautiful Templo De Debod is this unusual, eye catching and on its unveiling slightly controversial monument.
Monumento A Los Caidos Del Cuartel De La Montana is a monument that was unveiled in 1972,the work of Joaquin Vaquero Turcios ,the image created represents a fallen defender of the mountain barracks, attacked during the bitter and bloody Spanish Civil Wall ,in an area of outstandingly beautiful architecture and peaceful park area's it's hard to believe the horrors that unfolded here and this striking image is a reminder of this sad chapter in the rich history of not just this beautiful city but of this magnificent country.
East to locate on Calle De Profesor M Almagro Basch and if your planning a trip to the Egyptian temple most definitely well worth checking out.

I did not know the monument, nor the history of the barracks that existed in this place and how its defenders were murdered in 1936. A more than deserved monument.

Monument in the current park that the Cuartel de la Montaña occupied in its epic, near the Plaza de España in Madrid. It pays tribute to the soldiers who defended it and were killed after surrendering.

This monument is next to the Temple of Debod, at the entrance to Parque de la Montana. Represents a mutilated/dead soldier in a trench. It is a tribute to the defenders of the mountain barracks killed during the Spanish Civil War. It is one of the many monuments and statues in Madrid, it has its historical symbolism but nothing more than that.
