Venezuela's capital and one of South America's largest cities, Caracas was a Spanish colony founded in 1567 near the south coast of the Caribbean Sea. The city sits in a high valley, and today one side of this valley is preserved as Avila National Park. Caracas enjoyed tremendous growth during the oil booms of the 1970s and 1980s.
