Galería Dimaca

This gallery was a natural development from the well-known picture framing shop of the same name. It covers an ample spectrum of contemporary artists and types of materials used in artistic expression. Renowned names like Mateo Manaure, Oswaldo Vigas, Manuel Cabré, Jesus Soto and Carlos Cruz Díez are present. The works exhibited include such varied formats as drawings, collages, sculptures, engravings, lithographs, mixographs and serigraphs, as well as materials like iron, marble, bronze, acrylic, paper or wood normally form part of the exhibitions. Admission is free.

El Ávila National Park

December marks the start of Caracas' dry season, and it is a good time to escape the city for the mountains. El Ávila range looms north of the city and the park is surprisingly accessible from downtown. Hikers and walkers will find more than 200 kilometers (124.27 miles) of trails, but a cable car, or teleférico, climbs the imposing slopes in a quick 12-minute ride for those desiring a faster ascent. On clear days, El Ávila Peak offers breathtaking views of Caracas and the Caribbean.

Birthplace of the Liberator Simón Bolívar

Tucked away off one of the streets near Plaza Bolivar, the birthplace of El Libertador Simon Bolivar is no longer the tranquil house it once was due to its current popularity. Known as Casa Natal del Libertador, this quaint 17th Century house will take you back in time to the colonial era. A single story house, the Casa opens up to beautiful courtyards and patios. While its architecture is largely Spanish Colonial, the front facade is built in stone which differs from more characteristic colonial houses. The corridors, antique furniture and chambers depict Bolivar's journey from being a child to becoming Venezuela's most prominent national leader. Artwork by Tito Salas depicting Bolivar's significant life events are displayed inside the house. This house is a labyrinth of memories and a peek into the life of one of the most celebrated heroes of Venezuela.

National Pantheon of Venezuela

An illustrious monument to the national heroes of Venezuela, the National Pantheon is also an exquisite architectural and historical landmark. Built originally in the colonial style in the 1870s, the pantheon was revamped to become one of the first Neo-Gothic buildings in Venezuela. Awash in light pink, the aisles showcase some of the bravest national heroes and significant luminaries in Venezuelan history. The central nave of the interior is dominated by El Libertador Simon Bolivar, the most eminent of Venezuela's national leaders, with his sarcophagus placed at the earlier site of the altar. A magnificent Baccarat chandelier with 4,000 shards and over 200 lights festoons the ceiling. Excellent works of art by Tito Salas hang on the ceilings and are a great draw for art connoisseurs. A symbol of national pride and art, the National Pantheon is a glorious tribute to the greatest personalities of Venezuela.

Parque Los Caobos

One of the oldest parks in the city, Los Caobos is a serene expanse famous for its ancient trees. Inaugurated in the year 1920, it was initially named after Venezuelan National Hero Antonio Jose de Sucre. However, the presence of mahogany trees from colonial era earned it the name Los Caobos. This park is an addition to an area where the most important cultural complexes of the city are located, such as the Fine Arts and Science Museums, the National Art Gallery and the Teresa Carreño Cultural Complex. From a sculpture of Venezuelan novelist Teresa de la Parra to dinosaurs, the park houses some of the most exquisite structures including the Fountain Venezuela. A playground replete with slides and swings is perfect for toddlers to frolic around. Despite the boisterousness of the city and its many cultural events, Los Caobos exudes a sense of peace and serenity to all who visit.

Museum of Fine Arts

Museo de Bellas Artes is located in a Neoclassic style building designed by Carlos Raúl Villanueva. Every inch of space has been used to its full potential. The visitor that goes up the ramps will be able to admire the valuable Egyptian collection arranged in the landing. The terrace and the garden display sculptures by prestigious renowned artists. The museum also has three rooms for temporary exhibitions, permanent collections featuring Latin American, European and North American works of art among others. Other facilities include a library and an auditorium, guided tours, workshops and other events to promote cultural programs.
