Historical Monuments in Coro
Historic Centre of Choir
Coro is the capital of the stare of Falcon, and was founded with the original name of Santa Ana de Coro, in 1527 by Juan de Ampíes. It is one of the oldest cities in Venezuela. It is actualy quite well preserved, and was named a Unesco Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 1993, with its harbour, La Vela de Coro. Cultural life in Coro is lively, with several museums, including the Art Coro, and the Contemporary Art, but the best thing for sure is walking the cobblestone streets and enjoying looking at its colorful buildings, ranging from deep blue, red, yellow and brown, something for everyone's tastes. There are also several parks and promenades full of tropical trees such as the Alameda. The famous house of a 100 windows has everything, I'm used to Venezuelans exaggerating saying always "a million", and then one day I actually bothered to count them and there are actually 100. The Coro Cathedral, which was built in the sixteenth century, was the first in the country, is in the Plaza Bolivar.

In June 2009, I went with a group of 9th grade students to do some Biology fieldwork. The students had to observe and compare invertebrate animals on the coral beach. The trip was a success!
