The Caracas Cathedral is the seat of the archdiocese of Caracas, located in one corner of the Plaza Bolívar in Caracas, Venezuela. The colonial chapel of the Trinity is notable because it is where the parents and wife of Simón Bolívar are buried.
Architecture And Interior:
The cathedral has a romanesque plan consisting of five naves: a central one and two minor ones on each side. The central nave is separated from the lateral ones by octagonal columns with composite capitals, supporting round arches. The main altar and altarpiece are inside the presbytery located at the end of the central nave. The sacral art in the cathedral contains among others The Resurrection by Rubens, the Presentation of the Virgin by Murillo, and the Last Supper, an unfinished work by the Venezuelan painter Arturo Michelena.
