This bronze monument with a condor flying majestically over soldiers carrying flags is a tribute to Simón Bolívar. Known as The Liberator, this Venezuelan military leader organized the Pan-American Congress in 1826 near this statue. The goal was to unify Latin America’s independence from Spain. The Plaza Bolívar was dedicated to his achievements in 1883. A museum where the Amphictyonic Congress was conducted is located a few steps away.
