San Cristobal

Located on the Pan-American Highway, San Cristobal lies tucked in a mountainous region and serves as the capital of the state of Tachira. Founded in 1561, San Cristobal has always been a fast-moving, productive, and progressive place, developing rapidly over the years because of its agricultural industry and proximity to the Venezuela-Colombia border. While many colonial-era buildings were destroyed by an earthquake in 1875, the ones that remain or have been rebuilt rank high among San Cristobal's attractions, along with popular public parks, cultural attractions, and a lively music scene in the small bars and clubs.
