What was the amazing sculpture I remember from 22 years ago in Sevilla?

In 1993 I traveled around Spain as a student, and am kicking myself for not taking a picture of an amazing statue I saw two or three times fleetingly from the tour bus in Sevilla. Feels like a long shot, because I've searched for images of it online many times and keep coming up empty. Can you help me identify and locate it? [more inside]

Costa Brava in July/August: Is Air-conditioning really necessary?

Booking my 5 day stay in the Costa Brava at the height of the season right now, and I've kept it confined to small towns to mitigate the crowds. We are looking at houses on the coast in wooded environs, and I've noticed many of the best houses seem to have no A/C. Since they're right on the water I imagine that keeps the heat from being unbearable. Still, my partner is very heat sensitive, so just how comfortable is it without A/C?

restaurants in Madrid, Spain or roads exiting for 2 pm tomorrow?

At short notice we'll be flying into Barajas tomorrow at 11am, picking up family at Av De America bus station at 12.30 and driving down to Malaga. I haven't lived in Madrid for 20 years but I do know that restaurants around Principe de Vergara are unlikely to have come down in price! Are there smaller locations as we exit Madrid that would be better options for a family of 6? what's traffic like at this time of the year? what's the latest serving time? thanks..
