Esta hermosa ciudad se caracteriza por ser pionera en desarrollo cultural y musical, cuna de grandes artistas como músicos, pintores, entre otros. Fue fundada por Juan de Villegas el 14 de septiembre de 1552 con el nombre de Nueva Segovia de Barquisimeto, el cual tiempo ms tarde paso a solamente Barquisimeto; a su gente se le conoce en el interior del país como guaros.
Los barquisimetanos poseemos un lenguaje bastante particular, que ha logrado trascender nacional e internacionalmente; una de las expresiones que nos caracteriza es el Na`Guara que sinceramente no sabemos explicar que significa, pues resulta ser una expresión que se utiliza cuando estas alegre, emocionado, sorprendido, triste o molesto. Sin embargo esta no es la única expresión que tenemos los guaros, otras como ah mundo, guará, adiù, vacié, vacié carajo, cónchale.
This beautiful city is characterized by being a pioneer in cultural and musical development, the cradle of great artists such as musicians, painters, among others. It was founded by Juan de Villegas on September 14, 1552 under the name of Nueva Segovia de Barquisimeto, which later became just Barquisimeto; its people are known in the interior of the country as guaros.
We Barquisimetans have a very particular language, which has managed to transcend nationally and internationally; One of the expressions that characterizes us is the Na`Guara which we sincerely do not know how to explain what it means, as it turns out to be an expression that is used when you are happy, excited, surprised, sad or upset. However, this is not the only expression that we guaros have, others like ah mundo, guará, adiù, empty, empty damn, cónchale.
On the other hand, we have our typical meals, some typical dishes that characterize us and that if at any time you come to this city you cannot stop trying. Obviously the predominant one is the Creole pavilion, which consists of caraotas or black beans, shredded meat, rice, slices or fried plantain, egg and cheese. Other native foods of the Lara state are cheese and `mano, whey, milk cream such as sausages; As a main dish, the tripe of goat and cachapa with cheese and hand and as sweets or desserts define us the exquisite catalinas and Tunja bread. However, it is appropriate to note that our ambassador to the world, the popular AREPA, cannot be missing from our breakfasts, lunches and dinners.

Another aspect that characterizes the guaros is their passion for baseball, so if you are in the city between the months of October and January you cannot miss visiting the Antonio Herrera Gutiérrez Stadium, birthplace of our champion team, the CARDENALES. DE LARA that according to official data for the 2019-2020 season just before the pandemic, the Barquisimeto stadium was the one that sold the most tickets throughout the season, making the people of Barquisimeto the best fan base in the country. Because there is a meme that is very true and it is that… Guaro that is not from Cardenales de Lara is not people.
🎉 Feliz Cumpleaños Barquisimeto 🎉
¡Ah Mundo Barquisimeto! la ciudad más linda que jamás vieron mis ojos 😍
Finally, I want to say goodbye, emphasizing that there are innumerable virtues that Barquisimeto and its people have, I would spend more than ten thousand words to express all the beauty of my city, I just wanted to pay a small tribute to the land where I was born because today is the day of all the guaros and I wanted to celebrate it by dedicating a small publication to it, now I have nothing left to say:
🎉 Happy Birthday Barquisimeto 🎉
Ah Mundo Barquisimeto! the most beautiful city my eyes have ever seen! 😍
