Every year new constructions were appearing.

Santa Ana de Coro Town, Venezuela Since the founding, one of the main port town issues were pirates who often plundered the place and burned it to the ground. Despite this, the town has been rebuilt each time. Today, it is possible to see a lot of beautiful historic buildings of 18th-19th centuries, which miraculously managed to survive. The port area, where old buildings were preserved, is of particular interest. The main attraction of the town is Zamora Street. That's the most beautiful colonial street of Venezuela, where luxurious mansions have been preserved.

The oldest building in the city - Casa del Sol - is situated there. It neighbours with the beautiful chapel, Iglesia San Nicolas de Bari. The Cathedral stands out among other architectural masterpieces. One of the most romantic parts of the town is the Plaza Manaure. There are numerous museums, including the famous Museum of Lucas Guillermo Castillo. It houses the richest and most amazing art collection dating back to the colonial times.
