  • 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.

  • Structure emblematic of the central town of Caracas where they lie the remains of Simón Bolívar and other heroes, impeccable in internal cleaning, the surroundings are visibly abandoned, missing or dirty, trash granite slabs.
