Plaza de Bolivar, Manizales
(4.1/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Visit Plaza de Bolivar, a square in the heart of Manizales dating back to 1848. Originally called Plaza Parish, the square has undergone many changes throughout its long history, with the latest renovations taking place during the 1980s. Take a moment to pause and have a seat while watching people stroll by. You can't miss the Bolivar Condor sculpture (by celebrated Colombian sculptor, Rodrigo Arenas Betancourt), which watches over the square from the front of an adjacent cathedral. For excellent photo ops of the square below, climb up to the top of the cathedral.

  • In front of the Basilica of Manizales, the square has a monument at least interesting, who questions the human and their actions.
