La Palomera, People With Flight - EnElTapete

Journalist Faitha Nahmens writes the article "La Palomera, People with Flight" for the digital magazine En El Tapete, July 17, 2019, on the occasion of the fifth meeting of the program "Integration Process Caracas" titled Founder’s of La Palomera Celebration organized by Enlace Foundation, Ciudad Laboratorio, Bigott Foundation, La Hacienda La Trinidad, and the support of the Baruta City Hall

 

The author writes “The neighborhood is the city and also celebration, the music of the harp, cuatro and maracas is a powerful string that pulls those who climb the slope from the landing of the Baruta square. When you reach the sector of Santo Domingo in La Palomera, the postcard confirms what has been announced: there is a party under the ceiba tree... A barrio that told its story in the so-called Founder’s Celebration this Saturday of family reunion in La Palomera ("where so pigeons flew" – paloma means pigeon in Spanish) became better known. A barrio that has turned the sidewalks not only into spaces freed up to walk but also in art, as decided by children, in the fresh cement colored caps are exhibited that is now a yellow, blue and red (the colors of the Venezuelan flag) that belongs to them.”
