Not currently possible to go inside due to renovation work being carried out. Looks like it's not going to be over in a hurry!

I have read most of the opinions posted here about this place. I agree with some, disagree with others. Sadly, as most things these days in our country, many of the opinions are tainted by the political preferences of the individuals writing them.

I had wondered what the big ugly building crowding the Panteon from behind was, and then I entered...and was lucky enough even to see the changing of the guard. But first: the original Panteon Nacional is a stunning and solemn place. The murals and... More

Simon Bolivar is buried in this sacred place to all the venezuelans. We suggest you to dress accordingly if you plan to visit this place. The church was named "Iglesia de la Santisima Trinidad", and today the rest of this latin american hero are buried there. In the square outside you can find in the trees "the pereza monkey" which...
