Bolívar Square

Simón Bolívar is a real national hero of Venezuela. Many streets, squares, and even local currency were named in his honor. His ashes are kept in the National Pantheon which we highly recommend you to visit. He was one of the historical figures in the country and everyone knows his name from early childhood. According to historical facts, Simón Bolívar liberated Venezuela from Spanish colonists, took part and in 35 battles which he successfully won. Of course, there were failures as well. 

Bolivar Plaza in Caracas is one of the main and frequently visited places. In the past, it used to be the center of the architectural building-up during the tough colonial period. It was reconstructed in 1874. That same year, the equestrian statue of Simón Bolívar was set up. Today, it became a place where the locals arrange various events, construct tribunes and stages. From them, famous people and influencers deliver their speeches.

By the way, people don’t always need a big stage to perform. They just stand in the center of either a small or a big crowd and share what’s on their minds. Such gatherings became extremely popular in Venezuela. Especially those on religious topics. Citizens of Caracas spend some time on Bolivar Square not only to communicate and listen to other people. They also come here to feed the fox squirrels whom you can easily meet here.
