      Ela é o most famous icon de New York. Está cercada pelas waters do Hudson River e foi um gift da France to the United States to celebrate a abolição da slavery and the USA Independence.

      Representing Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom and democracy, she comforts os immigrants que vêm start a new life in the USA.

      Desde a first idea até a concretização da colossal statue que conhecemos today, in 1886, se passaram twenty-one years. Around 10 million dollars foram invested.

       Today, 4.3 million people visit her every year.
