“A waste of time”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Small, rundown and seems like forgotten by whoever is in charge of historic sites. Nothing of value worth the visit. The neighborhood is one of most dangerous in Caracas so pick up a taxi and ask him to wait in the front door. Muggers are waiting around for the very few lost tourists visiting
