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.

Inside, 32 columns separate the central nave from two minor naves, while a sculpture of Simon Bolivar sits in the right aisle.

  • It is a very personal experience, each who will enjoy an experience worth according to their beliefs. There is some deterioration, but in general the Church and the images are in good condition.
