Câmpia Libertății (The Field of Liberty) is located in the city of Blaj, in Transylvania, Romania. It was the place where two national assemblies where held during the 1848 Revolution, in one May and the other one in September.

A sculptural-monumental ensemble rises on the field, composed of a central monument called the "Glory" and 26 busts depicting the heads of the 1848 Revolution and remarkable figures of Romanian culture. Important sculptures such as Ion Vlasiu, Ion Irimescu, Ion Jalea, and Marius Butunoiu contributed to the monument.
