In many cities of Bolivia there are memorable places devoted to the national hero - Eduardo Abaroa.

Abaroa was not a professional soldier, but when Bolivia was attacked by Chile (Pacific war, 1879-1883) he took rifle in his hands and donated all his property for weapon and outfit for self defence unit. Abaroa died in the very beginning of the war, defending the Bolivian positions on the approaches to the city Calama (presently Chilean) in the vicinity of Atacama.
