Attractions from Venezuela

Arte Contemporáneo Museum (Caracas)
The art museum in Caracas is one of the finest of its kind on the South American continent. Here, you can see how Venezuelan art has developed over time, and at the same time the museum contains lots of works by international artists like Picasso and Miró. The museum is a must when you are in Caracas
Bolívar square in Caracas (Caracas)
This square is named after Simon Bolívar, Venezuela's liberator and national hero, and is the centre of the old part of town. This is where you will find monuments from the history of the city, like Parliament, the beautiful cathedral and the Santa Capilla chapel with its colourful stained glass. Something is always going on in the square, either passionate, religious messengers or enthusiastic politically active people shouting out their messages to the crowd.
Central Park (Caracas)
This is a good place to start, if you want to get an impression of modern Caracas. Actually Parque Central is not really a park, but a large area consisting primarily of concrete and iron, and with buildings that are so modernistic that the place looks like the set of a science fiction movie. These buildings are however impressive in their own special way, and even though there are no trees or bushes there is a flourishing life inside the park.
Angel Falls (Venezuela)
This waterfall is named after the American pilot Jimmie Angel who discovered the fall during his search for gold in 1935. No other waterfall in the world is as high as this, which also has the world's longest unbroken fall of water. From the top of the Ayantepui mountain the water falls 807 metres down into Devils Canyon. An impressive sight, made all the more beautiful by the many rainbows created by the water.
Araya salt quarry (Venezuela)
Salt as far as your eye can see. This quarry on the Araya peninsula is the largest in Venezuela. Gigantic Salinas are filled with salt water, put out to dry in the hot sun, and then the salt is broken into large blocks. The salt takes on some amazing colours in the bright sunlight, and sometimes it can be difficult to determine whether it is brown or pink. Salinas de Araya has guided tours from time to time, but otherwise there is an excellent view of the quarry from the El Mirador ridge.
Beaches (Venezuela)
The island's main attraction is definitely its beautiful beaches, but this is not a place for those who prefer authentic, deserted, palm tree beaches. You must enjoy being among lots of happy people, surrounded by bars and restaurants, in order to enjoy the breathtaking beaches of Isla de Margarita and their many facilities. Some of the finest beaches on the island are Playa el Agua and Playa Puerto Cruz.
Bolívar Place in Barinas (Venezuela)
The town square in Barinas shows impressive architecture from the colonial period, perfectly illustrated by the beautiful church, which was recently restored and now stands as is did hundreds of years ago. Palacio del Marques is the most resplendent building from the past.
Bolívar square in Caracas (Venezuela)
This square is named after Simon Bolívar, Venezuela's liberator and national hero, and is the centre of the old part of town. This is where you will find monuments from the history of the city, like Parliament, the beautiful cathedral and the Santa Capilla chapel with its colourful stained glass. Something is always going on in the square, either passionate, religious messengers or enthusiastic politically active people shouting out their messages to the crowd.
Bullfighting (Venezuela)
Spain is not the only place where the matador's fight against a snorting bull is extremely popular. Most large cities in Venezuela have their own bullring, where up to 20,000 shouting people can cheer on the fighting parties. Spain's best bullfighters come to the country for the carnival, which fills up the rings.
Caripe (Venezuela)
The surrounding area of this city is what makes it worth a visit. You will see sparkling waterfalls and fresh, green hills, but the biggest attraction in the area is the enormous Cueva de Guáracho stalactite cave. From the top of the Cerro Negro you have a magnificent view of the entire area.
