Inaugurated on 11 March by King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia, the monument stands beside Atocha railway station, one of the sites of the terrorist attack three years ago. It consists of an 11-metre-high cylindrical glass tower etched with the names of the 191 victims as well as messages left by well-wishers in the days following the bombings. The monument is open to the public from 10.00-20.00 every day of the year and can accommodate up to 20 visitors at a time. Since the inauguration queues have been forming before opening time every day.
