In this university town in western Venezuela, it's possible to relax in a park honoring Beethoven, sample more than 800 flavors of ice cream in a Guinness-record-holding shop and ascend into the surrounding snow-capped Andes mountains via the world's longest and highest cable car. The historic downtown, centered on Plaza Bolivar, contains an impressive church inspired by Spain's Toledo Cathedral. Adventure tour companies run paragliding, mountain biking and trekking excursions outside the city.
