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.

  • I imagined it better, or seems to. As a tribute to one of the sportsmen of Colombia leaves much to be desired.

  • As a lover of football enjoy visit this tribute to one of the greatest players in the history, however the environment surrounding the statue is not best, sellers who sit glued to the same and hard to Dodge in the photographs, stadium quite abandoned, dirty and stray animals.
