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.

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.
