  • Obelisco, its a landmark, its a lovemark,
  • It is a heritage of all barquisimetanos... A beautiful icon which has been witness to several generations. Currently it is a place with many shortcomings, lack of surveillance does not visit him. At certain times of the year they use Schloss as a makeshift market, leaving dirt in place. Although is it well worth visiting him even in passing in car.

  • Cute place and emblematic of Barquisimeto. Slightly sloppy. I hope that the new Government reopened this monument for tourists and locals.
