ascinating and

unavoidable resemblance of Southern Germany!

With its rich German influence, is a must-visit Venezuelan destination! How did the Colonia Tovar come to be? An agreement between the German and Venezuelan Governments saw the arrival of the first German settlers in 1843. This little town was founded by Colonel Augustin Bodazzi and Alexander Benitz, and remained untouched by the world until 1960. Everything about it is German-inspired. When you arrive here the first thing that will catch your attention will be the architecture. The whole city is made up of a number of small streets and buildings. Every building has a red clay tiled roof, and white or off-white walls intricately framed with dark wood. While vacationing in the city may be curious the presence of anglo-saxon peoples dressed in traditional German dress.
