    Walking through its halls takes you to the time of the colony. The House is very well preserved as well as the furniture. A visit that must be done at least once in life. Entry is not paid and access is easy due to its location in the Centre of the city.

    Visit this colonial House where was one of the greatest men of America no doubt in a phenomenal experience. Existenmobiliario which belonged to the Bolívar family and another from other "mantuanas" rooms in the Caracas of the 18th centuries. Works of art are also worthy of admiration. The Bolivarian Museum is right next to the birthplace. The entrance is free and worth

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.
