  • The visit to the national pantheon of Venezuela was an encounter with history. Magnificent the whole architectural and allegorical sculptures to the heroes. Sublime new building where lie the remains of Bolivar. Truly spectacular. Pity the impossibility of taking pictures, the insecurity of the area is high.

  • 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.
