This Plaza has been coverted into a political strong hold of opposition students but due to local government authority it is well maintained, clean and is a quite safe area. Close by services available is the subway which permits to and from access. No food or drink available except for street sales

This place is not too big but yet impressive and beautiful. The fountain and the whole setting make this place very unique and worth a visit.

Well maintained, colorfull, noisy, crowded at some hours, there is a Metrro station in its underground. Surrounded for most beautifull and some historic buildings of the city. Plaza Altamira is an Icon for Democracy and Freedom of Speech.

Caracas is not a great turistic city, but it have its moments and little corners. This place, well known by locals because its political charge of anti-goverment movements, is a good starting point for walking the neigborhood of "Chacao". It have a nice french style and good restaurants and coffee shops to spend a calm afternoon.

The plaza itself is nice, it has trees and benches, a fountain and an obelisk. It also has an entrance to a subway station. During the day, there's always people selling ice cream. The problem is it's right next to a very concurred avenue and so, during the morning and early afternoon it's surrounded by traffic and and noise. I'd... More
