Valencia is the capital city of Carabobo State (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carabobo_State), Venezuela (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venezuela).

The city is an economic hub that contains Venezuela's top industries and manufacturing companies. The population of Valencia reached some 1.2 million in the year 2003 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2003), and it is expected to grow dramatically in the years to come. Valencia is known for its racial and international diversity, and it is a relatively progressive city. It is greatly underrated, partially due to its proximity to Caracas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caracas) (some 180 Km away).

The elevation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elevation) of the city is 520 meters (1,700 ft). Valencia is located in a valley, surrounded by a mountain range called the Coastal Range (Cordillera de la Costa (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cordillera_de_la_Costa)). On the eastern outskirts of the city lies Lake Valencia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Valencia), Venezuela's second largest lake.

The city has been an active participant of Venezuela's history. Valencia was founded on March 25 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/March_25), 1555 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1555) by Captain Alonso Díaz Moreno (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Alonso_D%C3%ADaz_Moreno&action=edit). It was the first Spanish settlement in central Venezuela and its official name was Nuestra Señora de la Asunción de Nueva Valencia del Rey. The infamous Aguirre besieged the city in 1561 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1561). In 1677 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1677) it was raided by French pirates, who burnt down its Ayuntamiento (City Hall), thereby destroying many very important documents about the early settlement of Venezuela. The German (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germany) scientist Alexander von Humboldt (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_von_Humboldt) visited the city on his trip through the Americas. He reported that at the time of his visit the city had around 6000 to 7000 inhabitants. On June 24, 1821 the battle of Carabobo was fought on the outskirts of the city, sealing the independence of Venezuela from Spanish subjugation
