  • This work is emblem of the city barquisimetana. Night light ones look to cause a spectacular effect.

  • It is an interesting monument in the landscape but is definitely not a tourist stop, there is much to be done and nor is the site more secure

  • The green spaces of the surrounding area have been improved, security is excellent and the best thing is that now it can be upload and admire the view from the top of the city, good is not point high but equally worth a climb. I recommend to go on Saturday because it is the day which is open to the public
