Caracas, Venezuela's capital, has over four centuries of history buried beneath its urban city. Simón Bolívar descirbed Caracas as: "si se opone la naturaleza lucharemos contra ella y la haremos que nos obedezca" (if nature opposes us, we'll struggle against her until she obays us). Caracas is the place where you can see the legacy of Bolívar's defiant proclamation. It sits in the Cerro Avila Valley, where mountain ranges soar 8000 feet from the Caribbean. Once inhabited by Toromaimo Indians, the city was founded by the Spanish in 1567. In Caracas you find an array of cultural activity, world-class museums or eclectic cuisine, from the arepa joints of Sabana Grande to the haute cuisine of hubs like Las Mercedes and Los Palos Grandes. Nightlife is also one of the best in the country. Things not to miss include: La Plaza Bolivar, La Casa Natal de Simon Bolivar, Centro de Arte La Estancia, El Hatillo, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Caracas, Catedral, and Iglesia San Francisco.
