Maracay

Hi! It's Nick once more, and today i'm going to be visiting Maracay, Venezuela. When I was there I went to a museum that told me all about the history and government! The first thing I learned was, Maracay was first established in 1701 by bishop Diego De Banos Y Sotomayer in the valleys of Tocopio and tapatapa. (Now known as the central valley of Aragua). The city got its name from 'Maracayo' which means 'small tiger'. A maracayo is also the mascot of the maracaya Indians! I also learned that Maracay experienced rapid growth during Juan Vincente Gomez's dictatorship from 1908-1935. Gomez saw Maracay as a suitable place to make his residence during his rule.
