Plaza Bolivar, Caracas

(2.7/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Plaza Bolivar a part of your Caracas vacation plans using our Caracas itinerary planner.

  • In the Plaza Bolivar in Caracas is just the free Wi-Fi because they put keys so they do not say that it is free of charge and free as they always say

  • In the historical district of Caracas, which is indispensable to know it as well as enjoy giving food to the pigeons

  • Chavez's supporters and the thugs abound. I don't think that it should be an option to visit if you travel in the capital.
