All the parks in Venezuela has an organization called Venezuela's Instituto Nacional de Parques Nacionales with its headquarters in Caracas. I guess, you have guessed the name of this tourists' attraction in English.

El Concejo Municipal de Caracas is one of the tourists' attractions in Caracas and one of the most important landmarks in Caracas with some museums and historical sights. It is on Avenida Sur 2, near the Municipio Libertador de Caracas and El Silencio, occupies almost most of the southern part of Plaza Bolivar.

Some sources say they built it when President Cipriano Castro ordered that in 1905 and the architect Alejandro started the building project after that. Other sources say the bishops of Caracas ordered the building to host the Colegio Seminario de Santa Rosa de Lima and the process of building El Concejo spanned the period from 1641 to 1696. The seminary started on 9 October 1973.

However, the Real y Pontificia Universidad de Caracas took the place as the first university in Venezuela in 1725. Then Simon Bolivar changed the name of the place into the Universidad Central de Venezuela (UCV). The name stays while the university itself has moved to another place.
