Get around[edit]

See[edit][add listing]

There's little reason to stay here unless as a base for exploring the Llanos. But if you are passing through:

  • Plaza Bolívar - the city's leafy central square.
  • Barbarito Palace - located in Plaza Camejo, this early 20th century building was originally a wealthy trade center that was attacked by bandits trying to steal its merchandise on more than one occasion. After years of neglect, the building has now been restored and houses a museum with original mosaics and frescoes.
  • San Fernando Cathedral - this 1960s construction was designed by German architect Robert Klein and is notable for its bell-shaped roof.
