Surry Hills, Ibero - American Plaza

The Ibero - American Plaza is located along Chalmers Street, in the inner city suburb of Surry Hills. This site was founded in 1989 to commemorate the contribution of Spanish and Portugese speaking people to Australia. It features a series of 11 busts and 2 statues representing significant historical figures and national heroes donated by nations including Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, the Philippines, Portugal, Spain, Uruguay and Venezuela.

  1. What a fascinating photo of an interesting site. I spent time in Spain this year and was intrigued by the Arab influence in terms of culture language and cuisine. Thanks for sharing this interesting image.

  2. Seems strange having historical busts of different people from different countries.

  3. Great idea - if I was in the area I would definitely visit to learn more.

  4. That's quite a unique assortment. I do like their row of shadows.

  5. A good idea to generate interest in the contribution of these special people to the development of Australia, Jim. Thanks for taking part in the "My Sunday Best" meme.


Thanks for visiting my blog. Please leave me a message. Jim.
