#Edinburgh is a magic city, no one who visited it could forget the emotions received. We are convinced that the better way for visit any town is to live in it for some

Sir John Steel

days. We used to go to the popular places and try to living in the same way of the inhabitants. So, in this beautiful and interesting town we was living during ten unforgettable days. We took a little nice studio in the center of the New Town, in West End, and every day we normally went to a previously selected place. One day, we was walking along of Princess Street, and suddenly there was staying, in front of us, the magnificent statue of The Duke of Wellington on a rearing horse. It is a very special monument which has difficulties for be hidden, as it attracts the attention of everybody. This monument, whose unveiling was celebrated in 1852, is a work of the sculptor Sir John Steel (1804-1891). We liked  very much the place where it is sitting, in the most important and central artery, the Princess Street, just next and in front of the one of the most interesting buildings of the city, the Register House.
