If you are someone who is deeply interested in history and art and architecture, this is the best place to go to (in Venezuela). It is the home to plenty of monuments, like Cathedral of Barquisimeto, MonumentoManto de MaríaDivinaPastora, Flor de Venezuela, Obelisco De Barquisimeto, etc. If MonumentoManto de MaríaDivinaPastora is an astonishing characterization of the Virgin Mary (the prospective tallest kinetic art sculpture in the world), Flor de Venezuela is a paradigmatic pavilion, the roof of which is made of 16 petals that open and close depending upon the weather.
Canaima features interesting and mind-boggling sites. Canaima National Park is the home to the tallest waterfall in the world, Angel Falls. It is one of the most scenic, serene, magnetizing, and spell-bounding tourist attractions in the country. Reaching here, in itself, is a great adventure, including an airplane ride, boating, and hiking. Adventure seekers must not skip TepuiPark, as it offers cliff jumping, trekking, sky diving, and mountain climbing. Skipping the village life at Kavac is a big ‘No’! Due to lack of accessibility, it remains poised and untouched, and hence, the place is available with its raw beauty.
Caracas offers magnificent landscapes that can be easily captured by cable cars running into the mountains. It has one of the world’s longest cable cars, doesn’t it sound interesting?

You will see a varied range of flora and fauna in its forests, the most beautiful being the Easter orchid, its National Flower.
