ABC de la Conservación de Viviendas Tradicionales

Established as Venezuela's main port in the sixteenth century, the historic city of La Guaira boasts a significant collection of colonial buildings and public spaces that were severely affected by a series of mudslides in 1999, and subsequently neglected for several years.
