Caracas Sights

Catedral Metropolitana de Caracas

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Updated 06/22/2011

Fodor's Review

With its original facade unaltered since it was built at the end of the 17th century, the Metropolitan Cathedral towers over Plaza Bolívar. The main altar is a magnificent Baroque creation gilded with more than 300 pounds of gold leaf. Don't miss the Bolívar family chapel on the right-hand side.
