Iglesia de la Divina Pastora

Reviewed By JoelMorillo - Barquisimeto, Venezuela

Al salir de Barquisimeto o volver de Cabudare el primer pueblo que los recibirá será Santa Rosa. También es la razón por la que el 70% de los turistas visitan el estado, ya que es la casa de la Divina Pastora. Si bien el pueblo es visitado todo el año, por obvias razones es el primer trimestre cuando mas visitas recibe; ya que cada 14 de enero la Divina Pastora sale de su templo y regresa a finales de marzo. El pueblo en sí es muy bonito, muchas de sus casas conservan la estructura original, bien pintadas y con techos de teja. Además de calles decoradas con adoquines que los hace lucir vistosos.
No se cuántas veces en 13 años viviendo en el Estado Lara habré pasado o venido a Santa Rosa. Pero la última significó la primera en la que entre formalmente a la casa de la Divina Pastora. Finalmente conocí su santuario, me empapé por unos minutos de la fe Mariana que se respira en cada vestigio del lugar y éstas.....son mis impresiones. El Santuario de Santa Rosa fue construido por primera vez en 1640, durante el terremoto de 1812 que devastó las principales ciudades de Venezuela el templo (como la mayoría de los ubicados en Barquisimeto se vino abajo). Sin embargo, el nicho y por ende la Divina Pastora quedó completamente intacto, siendo interpretado por la feligresía como un designio celestial. Desde allí en adelante mas que el templo de la Divina Pastora se convirtió en el templo de la fe Mariana. Cada año Gracias a los donativos y promesas de los creyentes la fachada y pintura es renovada e incluso cada vitral que adorna la iglesia han sido regalos de los feligreses. Que yo recuerde, nunca había visto un templo religioso donde lo histórico, lo cultural y hasta lo económico (los que cuenten con reliquias) pase a un lado dejando a lo espiritual, como único y principal protagonista.

Tintorero

Reviewed By algy f - Atlanta, Georgia

Worth a visit ... Several places accept national debit card .. Premises have greatly improved service and friendly people is .. not for foreign tourists ... no one speaks English ... The prices are good if you use black market change. Never use American cards if you visit the country ... basically the whole country is very dangerous for foreign tourists

Parque Zoologico y Botanico Bararida

Reviewed By elmemo27 - Caracas

I visited the place with family during a sunday. We decided to be there early in the morning to avoid geat and crowd.
We were really surprised on how many species were exhibited. Rhinos, elephants, tigers, monkeys, zebras, camels, etc... It is well kept clean and safe. Staff is everywhere continuously watching visitors which is very proper.
My suggestion is to visit during the morning as place can turn extremely hot. Afternoons can be cooler too, but plague can be very annoying as well.
