Architects Juan Hurtado Manrique and Alejandro Chataing designed the arch, which underwent restoration in 2010.

Where to stay in Caracas

Safety is the number one priority when choosing an area to stay in Caracas. The city has many no-go zones, although accommodations are typically located in safer areas. Nevertheless, it's worth asking your hotel receptionist for advice before you go out on your own. Caracas offers a range of mid-range and luxury hotels at surprisingly high prices, with few budget hostels available. The areas around Bulevar Sabana Grande and farther east are generally considered the safest options of foreign travelers.

  • Takes it bike in Plaza Venezuela and arrives until the last station the Calvary, a rutero you will guide all the road, so is impossible to lose you. You need good legs, because you will go in rise. Already in the arc you'll come across a wonder that seems from another continent, the breeze and won't forget the sight. Once you're there, go up to El Calvario. Can return by the same bicycle or in the metro that is to the lower them ninety steps.
