    The Basilica of Santa Ana and Santa Teresa is one of the Catholic churches of most beautiful architecture that includes the city of Caracas. It is a point of peace and meeting with God in the mere Centre of the busy and congested Capital of Venezuela. Located very near other beautiful buildings as theatres: national and Municipal de Caracas. The Church of Santa Teresa has one of its ships to one of the most revered religious images of the country such as: El Nazareno de San Pablo... Definitely, no matter the time of day, if you want to pause of interior recollection, this church is the best!

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.
