Parque Pino - City Plaza Puno - Peru

Parque Pino, connected to the larger Plaza de Armas by the pedestrian stretch of Jir贸n Lima, was landscaped in 1901, to honor pune帽o, Dr. Manuel Pino, who emerged as a hero of the Guerra del Pac铆fico against Chile. A statue of the doctor stands atop a column in the center of the park, and busts of other notable local sons who partook in this campaign are found below. One side of the square is taken up by the "Glorious National College of San Carlos," founded by Sim贸n Bol铆var, general of South America鈥檚 independence wars.
