El Hatillo

A bit of national heritage, 9 miles from Caracas.

This small quaint town, just 9 miles southeast of Caracas, was declared a national heritage site for its great architectural value. It's one of the top daytrips for those who spend a few days in Caracas (there are several buses which make the trip from the center of the city). Located on the highest part of the mountain, it's home to simple houses and cute little streets that converge on a small square. You'll enjoy the many colonial buildings painted in bright colors, many converted into art galleries, crafts shops and restaurants. Also, if you visit between October and November, you'll be able to enjoy the El Hatillo Music Festival, which draws both Venezuelan and international talent of all musical styles, including rock and jazz.
