Bernardo de Galvez Monument

The Bernardo de Gálvez monument is located at the intersection of Palafox and Wright Streets. Created by sculptors Bob Rasmussen and Kathryn R. Vincze, the monument includes a bronze statue of General Bernardo de Gálvez astride his horse and facing the site of Fort George, his hat raised in victory. The statue sits atop a plinth of limestone featuring the Gálvez coat-of-arms cast in bronze. Around the plinth is a limestone bench surrounded by a perimeter of red roses representing the Spanish soldiers who died in the campaign. Pensacola Heritage Foundation worked to preserve the memory of Galvez while Bear General Contractors built the foundation and placed the statue for them.

The entire monument stands over nineteen feet tall — truly a grand entrance to downtown Pensacola.
