Far Cry 6 has a number of side-missions to undertake called Yaran Stories. One of those Yaran Stories is called Paint the Town, which tasks you with finding and defacing 12 statues across Esperanza. Completing this side-mission will allow you to recruit Zenia as a Bandido Leader, but finding all of their locations can be a real pain.
Just like missions that ask you to destroy a certain number of billboards in a region, for example, Paint the Town doesn’t tell you where to find the statues in Esperanza. They aren’t marked on your map, and although a quest marker pinpoints the location of each monument, it only appears once you get within about 30 meters of it.
Considering Esperanza is utterly crawling with soldiers and elites, driving around is difficult at best, and running around to find these effigies can take ages. This guide shows you exactly where the statue locations are. We’ll start on the outside and work our way in.
The first statue can be found just southeast of the Mercurio Mecanico guerilla hideout, in the middle of the roundabout in the main road entering Esperanza from El Presidente Square.
Continue east along the main road (on the periphery of Esperanza), heading toward Santa Leticia Square. As you do, you’ll quickly pass two primary roads to the right. Continue past them and stop at the third primary road to the right (it’s about ~300 meters between the first two roads and this third one).
There will be a small square near the intersection with a blue, green, and yellow building. The statue will be in front of that building in the small square.
The next statue can be found along the same road directly in Santa Leticia Square. The location is about 465 meters from the second one, and it is right behind a Gran Premio Race marker.
Keep going along the same road to Iselda Park, just after the restricted area on the road. The square is roughly 360 meters from the last one in Santa Leticia Square. This monument is in the middle of the park and is hard to miss. Be wary of the guard and dog in this area.
This one is on the north/northeastern side of Esperanza near the stone pier/blockade just northeast of Paraiso Coast Square. It is also off of the main road going around the periphery of Esperanza, across the street from a gas station.
Cross the bridge near the previous monument, and continue down this same road about ~370 meters. You’ll go through another restricted area on the road and eventually see a small, triangular grassy area with red rose bushes directly in front of you beyond the restricted area checkpoint. The statue will be in the middle.
Keep going along this same road for about another 600 meters. You’re headed to a small monument area that has trees with orange flowers on the western side of Hotel Paraiso. The statue is on the left side of the main road if you’re facing south/southwest.
Now, head south about 525 meters. Move east off of the main road to the street that runs perpendicular to it. Continue down until you reach small, concrete monument area near a red zone E1 blockade gate.
This area is about 150 meters west of the Mercurio Mecanico guerilla hideout, as another reference point.
Follow the same road east, past the Mercurio Mecanico hideout. Take the first road left (north) after the hideout, and go through the E1 checkpoint. Follow the road around, and go through the next checkpoint. You’ll be in a large, open area. Go to the very back, and turn right to find the monument by an alarm.
Now fast travel to Santa Leticia Square, and go northwest to Los Reyes Plaza. The statue is on the right side of the plaza, guarded by several soldiers and at least one elite with a dog.
Continue following the alleyways north from Los Reyes Plaza to Cartagena Park. The statue is in the middle of the park and hard to miss. However, there are plenty of enemies on the path that makes this one of the more difficult monuments to deface.
Once again, follow the alleyways north to Palmera Promenade. The statue is just east of the marker in front of the Zona E3 gate and barricade.
