The monument located in the Plaza de la Armada Española is a copy of the original made in marble that was donated to the City Council to be displayed in its rooms.

After the flood of 1957, the monument and the hemicycle of columns was destroyed. Later it was placed in front of a main stone door that gave access to the old Hispanic-American bank on Carrer de les Barques, the work of the architect Francisco Mora Berenguer, leaving the bust of Joaquín Sorolla on an old pedestal. As a dedication they read: “JOAQUIN SOROLLA BASTIDA 1863-1923 YEAR 1974”.

The author of the monument is Mariano Benlliure.
