Fodor's Review

Honduras's 100-lempira bill honors everything about Choluteca. On the front of the bill is independence hero José Cecilio del Valle (1777–1833), and in the background of his portrait, the city's landmark suspension bridge over the Río Choluteca. On the reverse you'll see the inscription, "casa donde nació el sabio valle", the house where Valle was born. To Hondurans, Valle was El Sabio ("the Wise One"), a Thomas Jefferson-type figure whose wisdom and foresight

guided the country through its early days of independence. His home here on the central park contains a collection of colonial-era exhibits. Valle's statue sits across the street in the central park.
