Plaza de Bolivar, Manizales

(4/5 based on 110+ 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.

  • The place is right in front of the Church. You can stay here a moment and watch the action. Send houses trappings. The place is located in the old place.

  • The monument is impressive but it is just a square in the center nothing special. If you just passing by it is worth visiting  more »
  • The problem of the square itself is built on a rise, leading to have stairs, since it's not like flat across the country, the city is dirty, but this does not square, but the night will come down around meretricio region.
