Ecuador Independence





edwinl
On October 9, 1820, Guayaquil became the first city in Ecuador to gain its independence from Spain. It was not until May 24, 1822 (the Glorious May Revolution) that the rest of Ecuador gained its independence after Field Marshal Antonio José de Sucre defeated the Spaniard Royalist forces at the Batalla de Pichincha (Battle of Pichincha) a mountain near Quito. Following the battle, Ecuador joined Simón Bolívar's Republic of Gran Colombia, only to become a republic in 1830.

Thanks Edwin. Am seriously thinking of visiting next summer. Or the one after. Will contact you then. Have heard such good things about it. Are there opportunities there for expats to work? And if yes, what kind of jobs? Smile

I have always wanted to visit South America. Paritcularly the Iguazu Falls...

Have had lessons in South American history during school days.. The story of Simon Bolivar and how he fought for the freedom and independence of many of the South American nations..
