    A great work of architecture that has its years of existence, seat of several university faculties, the hospital and the tropical medicine unit. It highlights the Aula Magna University cultural events website. Sadly abandoned by the carelessness and the policy today is in decline, violence and insecurity make yours, visit these spaces without a guide and protection is not recommended, regrettable but it is the sad reality. Good gardens and works of art.

    Great University, good teachers, magnificent architectural structure, filled with light, but it neglected. The politicking to a political side and internal corruption within it has made a very decadent University. But educational excellence remains standing and trying to survive the difficulties, or rather, trying to overcome the shadows.

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.
