Park
“The street, popularly known as the 'Cuesta de Moyano' due to its slope, has been home to Madrid's permanent book fair since 1925. In addition to its particular charm and the chance to buy books at excellent prices or browse through a few old tomes, it is also a good place to find items which are hard to come by in traditional libraries, such as books which are no longer in print or first editions. It connects the Paseo del Prado avenue near Atocha station with Madrid's Buen Retiro park. There is a monument presiding each end: at one end, a homage to Pío Baroja, the Spanish writer from the famous movement known as the Generation of '98; and at the other a statue of Claudio Moyano, the 19th.”
