National Panthenon and its collection

National Panthenon

The National Pantheon of Venezuela is a significant historical site that houses the remains of notable figures from Venezuelan history. It was originally located in the Altagracia parish of Caracas, on the site of the Church of the Holy Trinity, which was built in 1744 and inaugurated in 1780. The church was destroyed in 1812 by an earthquake that affected the city of Caracas. The Pantheon was inaugurated on October 28, 1875, and the first figures to be interred there were Francisco Rodríguez del Toro e Ibarra, Ezequiel Zamora, José Gregorio Monagas, Manuel Ezequiel Bruzual, and Juan Crisóstomo Falcón.

National Monument Status

The National Pantheon of Venezuela was declared a National Monument on July 25, 2002. This recognition underscores the importance of the Pantheon as a site of national heritage and a place of remembrance for the country's illustrious figures. Every year on July 5, in the context of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the acting president presents a floral tribute in honor of those who died in service to the country.
