10000$ Caracas, Venezuela, July10th, winner: Amber Liu

10000$ Caracas, Venezuela


Surface: Hard





Caracas (pron.IPA [ka'ɾakas]) is the capital of Venezuela. It is located in the north of the country, following the contours of a narrow mountain valley located on the Venezuelan coastal range (Cordillera de la Costa). The valley's temperatures are springlike, and the urbanizable terrain of the Caracas Valley lies between 2,500 and 3,000 ft (760 and 910 m) above sea level. The Valley is close to the Caribbean Sea , separated from the coast by a steep mountain range (Cerro Ávila) that rises above 8,000 ft (2600 m); to the south lies further hills and mountains. The historic center of Caracas, known as the Libertador District, had an estimated population of 2.1 million in 2005[1]. In that same year, the official metropolitan area[2] had an estimated population of 3.3 million[3]. Distrito Federal is the name of Caracas' primary seat. The metropolitan area also covers part of Miranda State.
The city was founded on July 25, 1567 as Santiago de León de Caracas by Spanish explorer Diego de Losada.

The city of Caracas was the birthplace of two of Latin America's most important figures: Francisco de Miranda and "El Libertador" Simón Bolívar.

An earthquake destroyed the city on March 26, 1812 and was portrayed by authorities as a divine punishment to people rebelling against the Spanish Crown, during the Venezuelan War of Independence.

As the economy of oil-rich Venezuela grew steadily during the first part of the 20th century, Caracas became one of Latin America's economic centers, and was also known as the preferred hub between Europe and South America.

On October 17, 2004, one of the Parque Central Torre towers caught fire.
