Amazing ranging from Interior and furnishings. Not taking pictures. Also by circumstances beyond our control to economical very like where I had the Guide, I to thought to pay the tip, to donations to the Church.

    Beautiful Spanish colonial architecture, symbol of the faith Christian, located opposite the Plaza Bolivar in downtown Caracas, is a place where you can breathe peace. I highly recommend it.

    The Cathedral, seat of the Archdiocese of Caracas, it is the main Catholic Church in the city. Not only has significant cultural but also historical, since internally it has separate spaces that recall events and important characters of Venezuela related to the faith of the people.

    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.

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.
