Caracas is the focal point of the country and is its financial, economic and business centre. Caracas is the capital of Venezuela and is situated in a long valley at 1,000 m above sea level giving the city a pleasant climate often compared to an eternal spring. The city has an interesting Old Town with many old churches and a monument to Simon Bolivar on the Plaza Bolivar. Caracas has many fine museums, galleries, bars and caf├Ęs. Political wall art, known as murales can be seen in the city, they offer a critique of contemporary Venezuelan politics.
