On the right, through a gap in the planting, opposite Nos 39 and 40, is a view of another statue, Plazotta's Homage to Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man.
The next statue on the right is of Simon Bolivar, a revolutionary leader who liberated South America from Spanish rule.
Looking across the road, No. 34 was home to Field Marshall Viscount Gort (1886-1946), commander-in-chief at Dunkirk, who lived here from 1920 to 1926. A lifelong soldier, he displayed great bravery in WWI, and rose to become the youngest ever Chief of the Imperial Staff.
At the south corner of the square there is a statue of Christopher Columbus, whose voyages across the Atlantic to the Americas opened up a new era of European exploration and colonisation.
