Plaza de Altamira, Caracas
(3.2/5 based on 460+ 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.

  • Place ice cream (scratch-off) and observe people with the Avila in the background, out of the subway, excellent location.

  • The Plaza Altamira... beautiful architecture... beautiful gardens, good place to spend a time of rest or simply walk, currently a little neglected and the source is not working... However a good place to rest and enjoy a rich ice cream or a coffee and the metro station. to move with comfort and shops nearby

  • This square is one of the most emblematic of the city. It is not a romantic place. But if to share with friends. You can skate and enjoy a pleasant time.
