National Pantheon of Venezuela

The territory of Caracas is rich in a diversity of fascinating buildings and constructions which are genuine monuments of the national history. There’s one incredible place in the city which you must see if you visit Venezuela to see its main attractions. This is the National Pantheon of Venezuela which keeps the remains of Simón Bolívar.

The Pantheon is located in the northern part of the Old Town. It was constructed on the spot of a church which was destroyed during the earthquake of 1812. Initially, the local governments intended to erect another church here but in 1874 their plans changed. Since that day, this spot has been used as the burial place.

When you enter the Pantheon, you can see the tomb of the great liberator, the monument to the Emancipator of Latin America and the Father of Venezuelan nation on both sides. These monuments praise Simón Bolívar. Clearly, there are other statues of significant people who made their contribution to the historical formation of the country.

In 1963, the government of Venezuela made a decision that common people are allowed to visit the National Pantheon. Since then, not only the local citizens but also crowds of travelers all over the worlds come to pay a tribute of respect to the great ancestry who gave their lives for the freedom and happiness of their children.

After you have got acquainted with the historical and architectural attractions in Venezuela, head to the La Estancia Public Park and Museum. It is located in the water-meadows which used to belong to the factory which produced coffee. It will impress you not only with its scenic landscapes but also with a wide range of various workshops and classes.
