Musical Capital of Venezuela

Barquisimeto houses a population of just under 2 million people and represents the fourth-largest city in the country. Founded in 1552, the fledgling town relocated several times due to frequent flooding and strong winds. Once settled in the present location, Barquisimeto grew into an economic and commercial hub. Notable examples of Modernist architecture represent some of the main attractions in Barquisimeto, along with museums, monuments, and plazas.
