One of the oldest Venezuelan cities was founded in 1527 by Juan de Ampies. In the old colonial down town you can admire many historically interesting buildings, which made the UNESCO declare the city in 1993 a World Heritage Site.

A feature that immediately catches the visitor's attention is the houses' colorful contrast. Deep indigos alongside with intense burgundy and ochre yellows give the town a picturesque tropical gaiety. You can enjoy Coro simply walking on the paved streets or under exuberant trees on the enchanting promenades.

Coro's cathedral, a valuable architectural work from the XVI century, is well worth a visit. It was the first cathedral built in the country and the first diocesan see. This town has been since colonial days one of the most religious centers in the country.
