Plaza Bolivar, Caracas

2.7
Visit Plaza Bolivar, the heart of the oldest district in Caracas, to pay tribute to one of South America's most iconic military and political leaders. The monument to the national hero, Simón Bolívar, was inaugurated in 1874, with statues of four women in the corners of the plaza representing the four original states of Gran Colombia: Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, and Colombia. The equestrian statue shows Bolivar in a proud, authoritative light. Many of the city's most important buildings stand close to the square.

  • In the historical district of Caracas stands, as in each city in Venezuela, the square that bears the name of the Liberator. But most cute of this square are its natural beauties, bold squirrels and millenary iguanas, down to eat without fear, making the visitor forget for a moment that it is in the middle of a big city. Highly recommended.
