The Mafalda Monument

As you wander the beautiful San Francisco park in the center of Oviedo city, you may be surprised to encounter a very familiar character.  Sitting on a bench opposite the ornamental duck pond is a life-size monument of the precociously philosophical cartoon character Mafalda from Argentina .   

In 2015, Mafalda’s creator—the cartoonist Quino—was awarded a prize by the princess of Asturias in recognition of his contributions to the arts and humanities.  As a result, a monument of Mafalda was installed and unveiled in the San Francisco park in the province of Asturias, Oviedo.
