  • It gave us a better understanding of the history and culture of Venezuela and other South American countries. Our wise guide much and was well. Free entry but is required to show official identification. Guide us not charging not but depends on generous visitors tips.

  • During the day it is safe (always accompanied), is beautiful and has a lot of story told within it. Valley super worth it! It's a big part of Venezuelan history. The remains of Simon Bolivar are right behind in a gigantic work, with 24 hour guard. Definitely worth a visit.

  • You must know the national pantheon (and all historical sites) already that they represent part of our history and our heritage and that we must pass it on to our children.

  • El panteón Nacional es patrimonio histórico de Venezuela. Es una estructura que está bien cuidada, dónde están enterrados los próceres de la independencia y otras importantes personalidades. Está abierto hasta las 3. Conseguir estacionamiento es difícil los días de semana. Sí bien es cierto tiene guías turísticos, el panteón tiene códigos QR para escanear con la historia de cada uno de los personajes que están enterrados ahí. El mausoleo a Simón Bolívar es impresionante. Es un sitio que debes visitar si vas en plan de turismo a Caracas.
  • Historic Venezuela place
  • I've never been here, I'm just doing a project for school. It seems pretty cool, with all those dead bodies and all. Overall, if I were to ever go here, I think i would have a decent time.
  • nice
  • Very well kept. With security. Excellent environment for exercise or take the kids to play
