Caracas

In a beautiful valley between the mountains, the charismatic capital of Venezuela is a natural, cultural and sometimes wild destination. Large parks surround a city that is also full of art.

Art between the mountains

Visiting El Ávila by cable car is a good way to start your trip to Caracas. The Cathedral of Santa Ana offers a truly spectacular panoramic view. The tour could continue through Plaza Bolívar, a dynamic square and cultural treasure, perfect for taking the pulse of the city. The imposing architecture of the Federal Legislative Palace and all the works of art it houses are also something you have to see in Caracas. As well as the neo-Gothic colonial Palace of the Academies. If you want to learn more about the history of the city, visiting the Colonial Art Museum and Bolívar Museum is a good start. Just as enjoyable as taking a tour of the Municipal Market of Chacao.
