    The Museum of fine arts is located in the most important cultural area of Caracas, that place is known as the Museum Square, since in that area runs the Museum of fine arts, the Science Museum and the national art gallery. These two latter are a structures built by one of the most illustrious architects of our country Carlos Raúl Villanueva and the reliefs are one of the most prominent sculptors Francisco Narvaez, is a great experience to visit these places that are also very close to one of the architectural wonders of our country, the Teresa Carreño theater. Visit these places and enjoy it!

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.
