The Atocha station memorial is a memorial monument located at Atocha station in Madrid, Spain, that commemorates the 191 victims of the 11 March 2004 Madrid train bombings and the special forces agent who died when seven suicide bombers blew themselves up on 3 April 2004. The 11-m tall (36ft) cylinder stands above Atocha station, the destination of the four trains that were attacked. Thousands of messages of condolence made in the days after the attacks are inscribed on the inside of the tower. The messages of grief can be seen from a chamber beneath the hollow monument. King Juan Carlos, Queen Sofia and Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero attended a sombre ceremony at the site. Wreaths were laid at the foot of the tower and mourners observed three minutes of silence.
