Neighborhood
See one of the landmarks of the capital city when you visit Plaza de Altamira. In the center of the plaza stands the obelisk, a symbol of the city. A fountain begins at the obelisk and the water falls all the way down to the edge of the plaza. While at the edge of the plaza, stop to have a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants that surround the open area. From the plaza, also admire the views of nearby mountains. For your safety, many visitors recommend not visiting the plaza after dark. To visit Plaza de Altamira and other attractions in Caracas, use our Caracas family vacation planner.

  • The Altamira square is currently the icon of the opposition in Venezuela, with metro station, water fountains and a beautiful Obelisk. It also presents book fairs and is beautifully decorated in Christmas

  • The square is in good condition, excellent maintenance and easy access, is a place where you can be a day in the evening without stress, without haste, just enjoying the view.

  • Yesterday I have visited. Full of beggars, pediguenos, crazy, some aggressive. We had to run out. The surrounding area smell urinals. It is no longer about before... It even has surveillance or police presence.
