Venezuela.
Revitalizations in Caracas.

"El Calvario" Park

Its construction was ordered by the President Antonio Guzmán Blanco to French landscapers to create a botanical garden and a walk in El Calvario's hill. The construction ended in 1883 with the name of "Paseo Guzmán Blanco" (or Guzmán Blanco's Walk in English). The promenades were placed in big terraces and were realized by Luciano Urdaneta and Eleazar Urdaneta. The promenade counted with a chapel and a statue of Guzmán Blanco called popularly as "El manganzón" ("the lazy man" in English) that was removed after he went out of the government.

In 1884 Joaquín Crespo rules the country and insists on doing ampliations in the promenade, besides the change of the name to "Paseo Independencia" (or Promenade Independence in English). In 1885 was included another temple, the chapel Nuestra Señora del Lourdes of gothic style. Then, other Venezuelan presidents were interested in doing expansions in this park. In 1895 was inaugurated the Arco de la Federación (or Federation's Arc in English) in commemoration of the Federal War. Alejandro Chataing and Evaristo Padillo were in charge of this development. In 1898 the Cristobal Colon's Monument is being built, and also some stairs called Graderías de Colón (Colon's grandstands), today known as Escalinatas de El Calvario (Staircases of El Calvario).

In the park you can find busts and statues of José Joaquín de Olmedo, José Francisco Bermúdez, Simón Rodríguez, Teresa Carreño, Simón Bolívar (donated by the Libanese community by the first centennial of the declaration of Independence), Agustín Codazzi, Ezequiel Zamora and Pedro Elías Gutiérrez, and others. Inside the park there are five squares: Simón Bolívar, Agustín Codazzi, Cervantes, Teresa Carreño and La Estrella (The Star), and also El Gazebo (The Gazebo) and El Parnaso (The Parnassus).
