Founded in 1552, Barquisimeto is the fourth largest city in Venezuela, and one of the country’s oldest. The city sits on the edge of the Turbio River and has a moderate and pleasant climate. Along with old, Spanish-style buildings, newer modern and experimental designs have become a part of this city’s skyline. The highlight is the Barquisimeto Cathedral, which was completed in 1968. However over the years, a mix of architectural styles have made this city’s landscape unique and endlessly interesting. Barquisimeto is also said to have some of the most beautiful sunsets in the country. So find a romantic spot and enjoy the view.
