Venezuela History

Venezuela is among the most urbanized countries in Latin America; the vast majority of Venezuelans live in the cities of the north, especially in the capital Caracas which is also the largest city. Other major cities include Maracaibo, Valencia, Maracay, Barquisimeto and Ciudad Guayana. Venezuela is also home to a diversity of wildlife in a variety of protected habitats.

The name Venezuela"" is believed to have originated from Amerigo Vespucci who, along with Alonso de Ojeda, led a 1499 naval expedition along the northwestern coast's Gulf of Venezuela. On reaching the Guajira Peninsula, the crew observed villages that the people had built over the water. This reminded Vespucci of the city of Venice, so he named the region ""Venezuola"

meaning ""little Venice"" in Italian. In Spanish

the suffix -zuela is used as a diminutive term; thus

the term's original sense would have been that of a ""little Venice""."""
