  • Beautiful very well maintained monument, forming a beautiful architectural ensemble, making it a good show.

  • 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.

  • I visit Paris, before this beautiful park is my neighbor, and surprised much because you get up when you envelope one of my walks around Paris, which did not surprise me (if I had occupied a little more than knowing our history and our places) because when you investigate I knew that this park was commissioned by Guzmán Blanco (who loved Paris) and this contract a French landscape architect... and although it has suffered further extensions such as the small Gothic Chapel, and the construction of the Arch of the Federation has maintained and I would even say that broad its original essence, is a beautiful ride, but as always I recommend the issue of security, I think something solitary and its surroundings are not very safe, caution...

  • 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.
