Carlos El Pibe Valderrama Statue, Santa Marta

2.1
Carlos Valderrama, the famous soccer player who hails from the city, is honored at Carlos El Pibe Valderrama Statue, where a statue stands outside of an old stadium. Tourists visit to grab a photo with the statue that's topped off with a hanging plant to represent Valderrama’s signature golden afro. City tours generally make stops here for photo opportunities, but finding the location on your own requires a little bit of a drive from the center of the city. Near the statue you can find many stands selling souvenirs. Carlos El Pibe Valderrama Statue is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Santa Marta Edition.

  • A statue 6 meters high from the "pibe" Valderrama. It is very well made and is the obligatory photo if one goes for the Quinta de San Juan Alejandrino.

  • We are clearly going to visit this statue as my friend is a fan but the walk from the city centre is not interesting anything to do and with this heat quite difficult... the statue is in front of an abandoned stadium where many people are homeless...

  • A beautiful representation of a person who gave many joys to the country. Example for all children who like sport
