Bolívar Square, Bogotá, Colombia
Plaza de Bolívar is both a meeting place and an important symbol for the people of Bogotá. Some of Colombia's most important institutions are on the Plaza: Capitolio Nacional, seat of the National Congress and a neo-classical building by English architect Thomas Reed; the Alcaldía de Bogotá (the mayor's office), known as Edificio Liévano by French architect Gastón Lelarge; the Palacio de Justicia, built to replace the Supreme Court's previous building which burned down in 1985; and the Catedral Primada, in which lies the tomb of Jimenez de Quesada, Bogotá's founder. A statue of Simón Bolívar by the Italian sculptor Tenerari is located in the middle of the plaza. Dating from 1846, it is the city's oldest public monument.
