The Noguerol Project to remodel España Square (2002)

The call for proposals to remodel España Square in 2000, to build a new underground car park, was won by the project presented by Alberto Noguerol and Pilar Díez. The well-known architects proposed a square without traffic, and that the statue of Franco should be removed. The new 'Town Hall of Democracy' would be built instead, and the demolition of the town hall from Franco's time in La Magdalena would recreate the original plan of the 'Parade Ground'. Finally, the Noguerol Project was not used.
