Plaza Bolívar is a small plaza surrounded by 19th-century architecture and is one of the most pleasant places in Casco Viejo, day or night. The plaza gets little road traffic and is trimmed with cafes and restaurants outfitted with large shade umbrellas and a casual atmosphere. The focal point of the plaza is a monument to the Venezuelan general Simón Bolívar, the "Liberator of Latin America". The Plaza was originally known as the Plaza de San Francisco but in 1883 the city council devoted the plaza to Bolívar the Liberator, a respected hero throughout Latin America.
