El Cid Campeador is an outdoor equestrian statue depicting the Spanish knight El Cid by artist Anna Hyatt Huntington, architect William Templeton Johnson, and the foundry General Bronze Company, installed at Balboa Park's Plaza de Panama, in San Diego, California. The bronze sculpture was created in 1927 and dedicated on July 5, 1930. The statue measures approximately 11 x 9 x 7 ft, with a 16-foot diameter, and its concrete or Indiana limestone base measures approximately 11 x 14 x 8 ft. It was surveyed and deemed "treatment needed" by the Smithsonian Institution's "Save Outdoor Sculpture!" program in March 1994.
