  • It is a pity that this emotive monument has built a modernist parapet that pouts the beautiful original esdification. Anyway, it's worth visiting and paying homage to the great heroes buried there.

  • It is sad to see how politics touch this place that for us Venezuelans is a symbol of respect and greatness

  • Nice place to visit.
  • I've never been here, I'm just doing a project for school. It seems pretty cool, with all those dead bodies and all. Overall, if I were to ever go here, I think i would have a decent time.
