  • 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.

  • I think it was my first time in the national Panteaon and the mausoleum, it seems to me that it is an impressive and overwhelming place... in the best sense of the word. The mausoleum is enormous and in my opinion very well done, it is worth visiting it

  • 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.
  • A beautiful place tourist and historic of Venezuela, always maintained and guarded. It is recommended to assist in hours of changing of the guard of honor. Place of free access.

THE EMOTIONAL MEANING THAT CONVEYS TO ALL VENEZUELAN WHO LOVES HIS COUNTRY.

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.
