November 1988 - Bogata Columbia
The Bolivar Square (Plaza de Bolivar) was named after Simon Bolivar who was one of South America’s greatest generals. His victories over the Spaniards won independence for Bolivia, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela. He is called El Liberator (The Liberator) and the “George Washington of South America.”
To the East side of the square, you will find the Primary Cathedral of Bogotá, the seat of the Archbishop of Bogotá.
Beautiful architecture. His name is all over the place, even in places he never saw himself!ReplyDelete
