    Aqui aparecio La Chinita
    La imagen de la Virgen esta ubicada en el lugar exacto donde estaba la casa de Maria Cárdenas, la lavandera que recogió del lago, la "tablita" en la que luego apareció grabada la imagen de la Virgen. Es una plaza hermosa, muy bien diseñada y mantenida, con amplios y cuidados jardines y una fuente en la parte central, vale la pena visitarla al caer el sol, para disfrutar de una temperatura mas agradable. La plaza conecta con la Plazoleta de Basílica de Nuestra Señora de Chiquinquira. Un dato curioso: En noches de luna llena, aproximadamente a las 8:00 PM, la Luna se encarga de coronar el monumento a la Virgen, es un espectáculo verlo desde la Basílica.

    Beautiful, BUT...
    Walking from the Basilica to the statue is a real treat. It is a beautiful site in every way. The statue itself is magnificent. The walkway is lined with benches and appears to be a lover's lane with kissing couples everywhere. Caution: This location is in one of the most dangerous parts of town. Do hide valuables, cameras, phones, etc. and be mindful o0f your surroundings!

    grande y quizas un espacio imponente
    En pleno centro de Maracaibo, en realidad una plaza muy adornada, grande un lugar que un turista internacional podría visitar y disfrutar. Quizás podría decir que la plaza es un poco imponente. Ahora bien no es un lugar para visitar mucho rato es para conocer fotos e irse pues es inseguro de noche, cuando plazas a nivel mundial son concurridas de noche esta se vería hermosa de noche pero mucho peligro.

This place is nice to go with children or family. Children can take they're skates and play around. Two of the most representative churches in the city are at both ends, so is a must. Take your cautions for crowded places and is better to always visit mid afternoon, or at least before is goes too late in the night.

This is definitely the prettier landmark of Downtown in Maracaibo, the Catedral is just a few blocks away,Teatro Baralt and the Famous Plaza Bolivar. When you travel around Maracaibo you will see a lot of statues of " La Virgen de Chiquinquira " but here in La Plaza del Rosario the Statue is gorgeus, you will definitely feel that you are in the heart of the town, and you feel the love and protection of La Virgen around you, Maracuchos are fervent believers of this Virgen , so you definitely want to go and have some pictures taken and buy some local souvenirs. The only bad thing is that Downtown Maracaibo can be a little dangerous if you are a tourist,and lots of people try to sell something to you, specially if you look like a tourist, is always good to be alert and caucious not carry a lot of cash or special traveler documents with you, if you have a friend with you that is a local is a plus. Maracaibo definitely is one of my favorite cities in Venezuela. People is kind and happy and the food is very good!
