As in every city in Venezuela there is a Plaza Bolivar (or Parque Bolívar) in the city centre. Simón Bolívar (1783 - 1830) was the leader of the independence war against the Spaniards. In Merída it is a pleasant square with green trees and benches where you can sit down to take a rest and watch all the people walking by.
Around the square you will find the cathedral, museums, the Palacio del Gobierno and shops. In the middle of the square stands a statue of Bolívar on a horse. It was erected in 1930.
