Long Description:
Le monument Simón-Bolívar est situé dans le parc de l'Amérique-Latine.

Dévoilé en 1983, ce monument de la ville de Québec est un don du Venezuela au gouvernement du Québec à l'occasion du bicentenaire de naissance de ce grand libérateur.
Général et homme politique vénézuélien, Simón Bolívar est une figure emblématique de l'émancipation des colonies espagnoles d'Amérique du Sud dès 1813. Il a contribué de manière décisive à l'indépendance des pays actuels que sont la Bolivie, la Colombie, l'Équateur, le Panamá, le Pérou et le Venezuela.

Il a participé à la création de la Grande Colombie, dont il souhaitait qu'elle devienne une grande confédération politique et militaire regroupant l'ensemble de l'Amérique latine.
Bolívar est aujourd'hui une icône politique et militaire dans de nombreux pays d'Amérique latine et dans le monde. Il a donné son nom à un très grand nombre de places, de rues ou de parcs.

General and Venezuelan politician, Simón Bolívar is an emblematic figure of the emancipation of the Spanish colonies of South America since 1813. He contributed decisively to the independence of the current countries that are Bolivia, Colombia, the Ecuador, Panama, Peru and Venezuela.
