    It represents the work of all the carriers colonising these lands from the old Caldas. The expressions in each component of the monument are impressive as well as allegories. For those who descend from this lineage is a monument not to be missed!.

    Located at the most high in the city, in the District of Cyprus, the monument is impressive and occupies the top of a small hill, with a small park around and beautiful flowers. Very interesting story illustrated by the monument. Valley view is incredible from the top of the Hill. It can be reached by a long walk or public comfortably with bus lines which connect from the terminal or cable station.

    Beautiful Park, it has a great sculptures about the city, giving a review or replica of the main places of Manizales. In the other hand, some sculptures were built in homage of the foundation of the city.
