  1. The John the Baptist Monument is a 19.8-meter (62.3-foot) concrete statue dedicated to John the Baptist in downtown San Juan de Los Morros, Guárico state, Venezuela. It's known as San Juanote and is one of Venezuela's tallest monuments. It was created under the orders of Venezuelan dictator Juan Vicente Gómez in 1933 as a gift to the city when Guárico State was established. In 1935, the monument was transported from the hills of Calabozo to San Juan.


    San Juan de Los Morros and its Baptist Monument are situated in a broad geographical area that encompasses the foothills of the central Venezuelan Coastal Range as well as the lowlands of the Venezuelan Llanos. Sanjuanote is located on El Calvario hill, a little peninsula near the city's center. The statue is encircled by concrete lions and ancient cannons that function as gatekeepers, guarding the monument in a symbolic protective manner.

  2. Casa Natal & Museo Bolivar is one of the most beautiful historical sites in Venezuela that is worth visiting. Simón Bolivar, Venezuela's independence hero, is honored at Casa Natal & Museo Bolivar. Only two blocks from where Bolvar was laid to rest, the elegant, single-story house where he was born today functions as a museum remembering his legacy.


    As you walk inside the mansion, which was erected in 1640 and renovated in colonial style in 1920, take in the numerous works of art and rich furniture. Take a tour to learn about the historic acts of the legendary Venezuelan, particularly his triumph at the Battle of Carabobo in 1821.

  3. The Venezuelan National Pantheon (Panteón Nacional de Venezuela) is a memorial to national heroes. The Pantheon (Latin Pantheon, from Greek Pantheon, meaning "Temple of All the Gods") was built in the 1870s on the site of the wrecked Santsima Trinidad church, which dates from 1744 and is located on the northern outskirts of Caracas' old town.


    The entire central nave is dedicated to Simón Bolvar, with the hero's bronze coffin taking the place of the altar, and lesser luminaries relegated to the aisles. The vault of the national pantheon is decorated in 1930s murals depicting episodes from Bolvar's life, and the massive crystal chandelier glistening overhead was placed in 1883 to commemorate his birth's centennial. After a three-year extension and repair project, the Pantheon reopened in 2013.

  4. Another place among the most beautiful historical sites in Venezuela is no other than Basílica menor de Nuestra Señora del Valle. The Basilica of Our Lady of El Valle (Spanish: Baslica Menor Nuestra Seora de El Valle) is a Gothic basilica in El Valle del Espritu Santo, a village on the island of Margarita, in the state of Nueva Esparta, Venezuela.


    It is named after the town's and the Venezuelan Navy's patron saint, the Virgen del Valle. After the church of San Nicolás de Bari was built, it was named a Basilica of the state of Nueva Esparta on September 8, 1955, and its festivities began on that date, beginning with the Virgin's descent on September 8 each year, which is held where the public may see it up close. The Virgin Mary rises on the 8th of December, and she is placed on an altar at the top of the church, where the priest officiates masses.

    It began as a tiny church that was altered multiple times, the most recent of which was managed by Father Philip Martinez in 1733. In 1995, Pope John Paul II designated it as a Minor Basilica.

  5. The Toledo Cathedral in Spain inspired the architecture of this magnificent cathedral. The construction of the structure began in 1805, but it was plagued by misfortune after misfortune, including the earthquakes of 1812 and 1894, the War of Independence, and subsequent internal political battles. Finally, the faithful of Merida had to wait until 1958 for the construction to be completed. It was erected to the Immaculate Conception in 1960 and designated as a Minor Basilica in 1991.


    The murals, Canon's choir, and the carved-in-stone picture of the Virgin of the Apple are all well worth your time, in addition to the spectacular building.
