  • The architecture of its creation is awesome, to be visited by foreign and own, Center of the legislative branch of Venezuela, where the Bicameral Chamber is responsible for the creation and formation of the laws, power controller of the Venezuelan State, today, with great difficulty by the political diatribe that exists in country. There are guided visits to the Parliament so that they know it.

  • The National Capitol is a beautiful place but not always you can go to its facilities because there members of Venezuela will meet.
