Statue is neat, and stands tall in the Plaza named after him. There is a lot of people all around though, with too many annoying street vendors wanting to sell you bird seeds.

The statue is interesting but tends to be minor compared to the buildings that comprise the border of Plaza de Bolivar. The entire area is impressive and a must see in Bogota.Pity about the pigeons of which there were too many.

Simon Bolivar statue located at the center of the square; definitely one of the things to do in Bogota. Although the square is a bit dirty because of the many pigeons.

The statue of Simon Bolivar deserves to be in better nick. Its right outside the Presidential Palace and the Cathedral , right in the middle of Plaza Bokivar, the city's main square. So it's in the right place.
The problem is that the plinth that the statue is on is in a very bad state, tired, crumbling and dirty. If it werec repaired and modernised, then Bogota would have a stately statue to be proud of.

Due to the fact that it is in the middle of the Bolivar Square, I was expecting a more impressive and majestic monument. But we just found a regular statue that you can see almost in any square, anywhere. Besides that, near the statue were a group of people protesting for something (and it seems that is a very common thing).

Undersized statute to start with relative to the enormous square it is standing in. The. It’s covered in terrible graffiti. Not good .

There are many statues of Simon bolivar in Bogota but this is the most impressive one . Our guide told us that he has never seen it without a pigeon in its head !

You can buy bird feed from vendors in the plaza. Do it. They will show you how to hold it and within seconds you will be inundated with pigeons. Video is best, but a camera will do to record something you will find anywhere else.

The statue of Simon Bolivar, the leader of independence movement of Northern part of South America. His statutes are everywhere in Colombia but this one which is in the plaza of Simon Bolivar is the most meaningful in my opinion.
