Camilo Torres Tenorio was a Colombian politician. He is credited as being an early founder of the nation due to his role in early struggles for independence from Spain.
Torres and Antonio Narino had grave political disagreements that divided the independence movement.
During the Spanish invasion of New Granada, Torres was captured in the city of Buenaventura, being imprisoned by royalist and Spanish troops. He was executed for treason against the Spanish monarchy on October 5, 1816.
