The Saladillo


Founded in Maracaibo, Zulia state in Venezuela next to the Malecon and the bridge Spain... received its name thanks to some salt flats that were in the area... it is the colonial zone par excellence of Maracaibo and its central quarter... the first historical mention of this neighborhood dates from 1773, developed a style of housing adapted to the conditions climatic since it is a very hot area, therefore the roofs are high with tiles... they are native dwellings with a very rooted identity, in the area all developed to economic, political and cultural activity.
In the Government of Caldera in 1970, much of the saladillo was destroyed since an urban project would be made, leaving only one street today called Carabobo Street as a vestige of such beautiful homes, which today are historical and cultural heritage of Maracaibo.
