It is easy to miss this statue as you tend to concentrate on the other major attractions on the Plaza. Located near the kerb, under shade trees, the monument honours Admiral Blas klavarrieta Lezo who was commander of the Spanish forces that resisted far numerically superior British forces at Cartagena de Indias.


He died four months after the battle from typhus.

The statue was erected inthree years after the Spanish Government determined that he deserved a place in history for his personal sacrifices and heroism on behalf of the country.
