This national monument is a few kilometers from the town of Barbecue, a national park, and is a waterfall a little bigger than 12 meters, the water color is burgundy, hence the name "waterfall of wine." It is a very busy place for visitors with its beauty, and there you can see all kinds of flora, it has space for picnics, and there are also cabins for comfort. The water is very cold ... YOu will not be disappointed ...
The structure represented Venezuela at the World Expo in Hanover, Germany in 2000. Designed by Venezuelan architect Fruto Vivas, its a system with 16 petals that open and close. Inspired by the Tepuyes of Gran Sabana of Venezuela and national flower, the orchid. There are numerous gardens and representative forests of Venezuela, fish tanks, a library, and an amphitheater.

The city of Barquisimeto, Venezuela is known for its amazing sunsets, which happen every day and gives us a show. Everything happens in 30 minutes, at exactly 5:45 pm, what starts to happen is it creates a rising tone color orange, which eventually escalates until 6:15 pm. I invite you to come visit this great city that gives visitors a natural show every day.
Laguna El Blanquito is a natural spring-fed lagoon near the town of Barquisimeto in the state of Lara, Venezuela. It's located in the Yacambú National Park and as it's surrounded by mountains, the landscapes are really beautiful. Around the lagoon there are nine cabins where you can stay overnight or, if you want to be more in touch with nature, you can bring your own camping equipment and pop your tent where you please. I'm more of a cabin person myself, and they local government is refurbishing the cabins as we speak so I'll be eager to check them out when they're done. They're also re-conditioning the road as it's a bit overgrown at the moment, making getting to the lake by car a difficult task. Can't wait until it's all ready!
I'm Catholic and I like going to church on Sundays ! This cathedral is one of the most lovely of Venezuela! It is attended by people from many countries and different parts of the world! It is a pretty and full of faith!
Upon reaching the city, one of the first things to see in Barquisimeto is the obelisk, which is undoubtedly the city's symbol. Standing 75 meters tall, it's visible from all corners of the city and is one of the must-see attractions in Barquisimeto. For those who are wondering what to do in Barquisimeto, they can find out from the top of the obelisk, where they will be able to identify the city's most important destinations and the many Barquisimeto attractions. From there you can see the original Cathedral of Barquisimeto, a building shaped like a flower and which is among the top places to visit in Barquisimeto. It's curious to notice the steel network that holds the roof of the cathedral together. However, it's not the only flower that is in the city. There's another flower structure that you can't miss, the Flower of Venezuela, which was part of Venezuela's exposition during the world expo in Hannover in 2000.
The city is also known as the Musical Capital of Venezuela, so the things to do in Barquisimeto includes visiting Juarez Theatre, which a perfect place to enjoy the local music.
If you have time, there are many Barquisimeto activities which don't include buildings, flowers, or music. You can stroll through one of the nearby parks, such as the Terepaima National Park. The park is full of interesting birds and primary forest, and is tops on the list of stuff to do in Barquisimeto to disconnect from the hustle of the city. For more ideas of what to see, visit minube.
