This title illustrates the complexity of a South American city founded in 1567 which forges a coherent identity with El Avila and the coastline, where different scales, geographies, architectural styles and natural and urban landscapes converge. This guide outlines the city's history with reference to its most striking architecture dating from approximately 1600 up to the present day. Architecture and urban spaces found in ten zones throughout Caracas are delineated, as well as conceptions held by urban planning experts regarding future initiatives that could transform and enhance the city.
