Plaza de Altamira, Caracas

(3.2/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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.
