Here we can see, on the foreground, the Monument dedicated to General Simon Bolivar, "El Libertador" - The Liberator (1783-1830), the revolutionary leader responsible for the independence of five South American countries: Venezuela (its own native land), Colombia, Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador. The monument, a gift from Venezuela to Brazil, was inaugurated in 1981, at Juliano Moreira Square (district of Botafogo). On the background, we can see Rio Sul Tower, Rio's tallest building (162 meters high).
