There are a lot of monuments in the city of Quito, mostly depicting conquorers or battles. This one is in honour of the heroes of the tenth of August.

Here is the overall. On a side note, most of the main streets in the old section of the city are named after the dates of events or battles. Seriously, hang a left at the Sixth of December.

Nicely done. Having the streets named for dates sounds almost as confusing as the adressing system in the Salt Lake Valley of Utah. A typical address in Salt Lake city is something like "3450 East 8200 South". They do have a few named streets but most are numbers!

Looks like permament employment for monument builders.

Having been thru some European cities, I am happy that I live in a relatively new city where the monument builders haven't had time to pay tribute their ancestors.

Thanks for sharing.
