Pay a visit to the 17th-century Catedral Metropolitana de Caracas to see where Simon Bolivar was baptized and married. The cathedral contains the private chapel of the Bolivar family, which also serves as the final resting place for Simon's wife and parents. A typical colonial structure, this house of worship boasts a tall bell tower with a clock at the top. Inside, 32 columns separate the central nave from two minor naves, while a sculpture of Simon Bolivar sits in the right aisle.

  • Nice Cathedral, Central and busy. They must step up security near the Cathedral. Do not forget to go to see it when they are by the Plaza Bolivar

  • It's a beautiful cathedral that looks out of place in the middle of the city. It lacks the majestic enormity of the stone cathedrals in Europe but it's well taken care of.

  • Very good 😊...
  • Cali
  • Grand place. It is often not crowded. It retains its colonial spirit. In it you can see one of the last works of Arturo Michelena, in addition to the crypt of the Bolívar family.
