Square in the center of city with dominant statue of Simon Bolívar surrounded by several huge trees. Close Bolívar's birth house, Museo Bolivariano and cathedral.

El corazón de Caracas

Lately Caracas it's not the ideal place to visit, thanks to the "colour revolution" we are confronting but if you're here you must visit the area whose pivot is Plaza Bolívar.

Always been a little stranget itself, this place is the crossing path of the people who enjoys their spaces in our mistreated capital.

From there you can take a walk to Boulevard Panteón, Plaza Diego Ibarra or la Cuadra Natal and its sorroundings.

If you want to take a taste of what Caracas is really like, please visit Plaza Bolívar

Photo opportunity when in Caracas

I went here with a friend who was showing me around the city. The square is small and has some lovely building surrounding it. It's a place to get your picture taken but be careful as it is not one of the safest places in Caracas.

The heart of old Caracas
Oct 2015 • Friends
This very central square has always been the center of the venezuelan capital. Today it is a bit dilapidated but there are huge beautiful trees, and the most famous statue of Boluvar the Liberator. It is a good place to watch people and also impirtant buildings: the very simple Cathedral and the yellow building that used to be the presidential palace and is now part of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

So much history around the Plaza Bolivar.

Yes, it is safe to go - nothing will happen to you. You need to be in this plaza as many things of historical significance happened here. The statue is right in the middle and they always keep it clean and safe.

We passed by the Plaza on our coach tour of Caracas. It is a suitable tribute to Bolivar and worth seeing, but there was nothing other than the statue which encouraged us to linger

Once a nice people and picture perfect site, now a bit different ...

At one time this was a majestic and typical nook for people watching and seeing the children play with the pigeons. Now it is taken over by the political power to be and is not too tourist oriented. You can still go and visit the lovely cathedral in the plaza. Never sit on the monument of Simon Bolivar, it is strictly respected.

Not worth the time.

Plaza Bolivar was a nice trip when I was young. There were some random food post around the square, a few store nearby, old people feeding pigeons and squirrels. It was a cool place to do some down time just enjoying the view. Now is mostly fill with junk stuff sellers, people running and thrashing about, and it's in a zone too insecure and full of petty robbery and gun-point robbery to feel like a nice place to visit, chill. And you have to be a little bit crazy to take photos with a DSLR camera in that area. So, in general, don't waste your time. There are far better places to go in the same spirit of this landmark.

Main square in the historical centre
This square is one of the main points of interest in the old town of Caracas. I came fully expecting a very unsafe place but was pleasantly surprised. I felt quite comfortable walking around and taking pics (albeit with a healthy level of paranoia).
