There are approximately 100,000 Muslims in Venezuela, 0.4 percent of the nation's population. The Caracas mosque is the biggest in Latin America.

My experience, Explo description: 

The construction of the mosque began in 1989.

The building was designed by architect Zuhe Fayez, and completed in 1993.

The mosque occupies an area of 5000 m² ; its minaret is 113 metres high (the highest in Latin America). The dome is 23 metres high. The mosque can hold around 3500 worshipers.

My personal recommendations: 

The mosque is usually closed. I did ask the bouncer at the entrance portal, and he let me in.

How getting there: 

The mosque is on Real Quebrada street. It is hard to miss it.

Metro : Bellas Artes or Collegio de Ingenieros.

This part of the Caracas Centro is ok, but not so safe : I had problems with some police men in the neighbourhood. Take a taxi if you prefer. Do not go there at night.
