Arco de la Federacion, Caracas
(3.4/5 based on 55+ reviews on the web)
A grand arch standing in Caracas' botanical garden, Arco de la Federacion commemorates the Venezuelan Federal War. The civil war between opposing political parties lasted from 1859 to 1863; in 1895 the monument was inaugurated. Architects Juan Hurtado Manrique and Alejandro Chataing designed the arch, which underwent restoration in 2010. Find other statues located nearby such as that of Jose Joaquin de Omledo, Jose Fanscisco Bermudez, and Ezequiel Zamora--hero and leader of the Venezuelan Federal War. Arco de la Federacion is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Caracas Edition.

  • A work as it is in any part of the world tours, photos, admiration, respect and Conservation Center, the arc of the Federation is a beautiful work, imposing significant, something that all Venezuelans should visit and know to fill us with pride and passion for our country and our history, at one point was very well taken care and life Unfortunately by now something alone and neglected, but equally spectacular

  • This architectural gem, built during the time of Guzmán Blanco, leads us to remember "la belle epoque" de Caracas, as it represents one of the built urban icons when Caracas ceased to be a small town to become the great metropolis that is today.

  • Before it was a walk, which could be up to walk. Today, with insecurity in its surroundings, is not highly recommended visit for tourists, some of whom have suffered assaults, arrebatones and assaults.
