“The square's central area contains the Doctor Robert monument by the sculptor Josep Llimona. Robert was a professor of internal pathology at the University of Barcelona. He was appointed mayor of Barcelona in 1899 and elected to the Spanish Parliament in 1901. The monument was built in Plaça de la Universitat between 1904 and 1910, commissioned by mayor Lluís Domènech i Montaner. The monument was dismantled in 1940 during the Franco dictatorship and moved to Plaça de Tetuan in 1985.” (Plaça de Tetuan, Wikipedia)
