La Dama de Silgar
(11)
The Dama de Silgar is the most famous statue of the quintessential tourist town of Sanxenxo. "The Madame" as it is also known, is the work of the Galician artist Alfonso Lamelas Vilar, born in 1927 and sculptor of most of the Galician public works and whose style has become an icon of the town. Nearby, in a large open space another giant statue can be found. It is a bronze representing a kind of "Gulliver resting" with his arms behind his head.
