Pedro Pérez Delgado (1881, Ospino, Estado Portuguesa, Venezuela - 7 November 1924, Puerto Cabello, Venezuela), better known as Maisanta, was a nineteenth-century Venezuelan revolutionary and politician.
The late-20th- and early-21st-century president of Venezuela, Hugo Chávez (1954–2013), grew up being told that Maisanta was his great-great grandfather, and subsequently held a great deal of reverence for him.
