Nice to walk around

It is a really nice place to walk by. On Sundays it's quite, you can have a book and read. Also, the street shops are very close, so you can shop and rest at the plaza.

There aren't too many places of interest in Ciudad Bolivar and this small plaza is probably near the top of the list. Attractive cathedral and government buildings, and a few trees. Added bonus of free wifi!

Its a peculiar place with a lot of history. That place was the start of Caracas. If you are around it have a look of the arquitecture and the chapel next to the square, they are the same as the first time when were builded. twitter: @soytuguiave

When you got to Plaza Bolivar make sure you visit Casa de Angostura and ask for Diego Stanley. He's a University student who is in love with history and he will explain everything about Venezuela and South America. It's a very good start to a South American journey.
