  • Masterpiece of architect Rogelio Salmona, who always used local bricks for his buildings. The library is located in a beautiful park with lake and nice paths for walking. Good plan for a relaxed day.  more »
  • Beautiful library infrastructure and green areas. Just in front of th3 simon bolivar park. I have spent many nights reading books here. It is spacious and comfortable to stay at. There is no wifi for phones though. You can still get free internet connection by using their computers. They have many rooms where they offer workshops and activities for all ages.
