  • If you are a fan of history or want to learn more about it thanks to the art, you must visit the national pantheon. The architecture itself is worth admiring In addition, the ceilings are covered with paintings of the illustrious Tito Salas, sides you find monuments erected to some of the people who received the honor of rest in the National Pantheon, and on the ground many ceramics indicate, by way of plate, the names of the rest of the historical characters that are there. Getting more toward the Center, is the Hall that connects the cemetery with the mausoleum of the Liberator. As you walk by it, notes as the ceiling rises and hardly see where it ends, which gives the impression that the rise of the Libertador has no limits. Four Honor guards guard the remains of Simón Bolívar and every two hours rotate yielding perennial honours the father of the nation. It is a compulsory visit if they pass through the city of Caracas.

  • When you walk into this place you transported to the time of our liberators, full insurance (for the situation country we live) guides you comment on it, I went when they were doing the changing of the guard where is the mausoleum of the liberator and it is a moment that goose you bumps, I recommend it to get to know a little more about our ancestors It should be noted that this monument where should be the remains of Francisco de Miranda, which were not found by common where he was prisoner to be buried in a mass grave
