Arco de la Federacion, Caracas

3.4
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 custom trip planner, Caracas Edition.

  • Very good aopcion to spend a weekend afternoon with the children, there will find transportation from the entrance accessible price, or you can climb on foot, at the top there are selling food and attractions for children.

  • One of the monuments to downtown Caracas is go where few tourists, since it requires physical effort to overcome the stairs.

  • Take the bike in Plaza Venezuela and reached the last station El Calvario, a rutero will guide you all the way, so it is impossible to miss. You need good legs, because you will go uphill. 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. You can return the same bike lane or in the metro that is lowering the ninety steps.

  • This bow is very nice. While one of his statues is mutilated may be considered is generally very well preserved. A bust of President Juan Crisóstomo Falcón has up on top even though it is not the part most high. Now at that site policemen are often placed to reassure that there pass to take their walks. The bad thing I see now that place is that there are many dogs and the worst thing is that I have seen three puppies pitbull are cared for in the same command of the national guard which is very close to this arc. For a year have decreased you lighting to this area, quite bad thing because I was going to walk to that place every day but since they removed the lighting stopped going, not only because of possible criminals but because almost floor to one of the many dogs that are there and if I would have made sure I had attacked because I had not realized account which were five dogs thrown in front of my. Go visit him it is obvious that they should do so in hours where there is light and if they are going to hike it should be rather than diminish sunlight.

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.
