If you enter the vast grounds of La Rinconada Hippodrome, the first thing you will see is an enormous geodesic dome, surrounded by a car park. This is the Caracas Poliedro, built in 1974, which has taken the place of the public square for all kinds of events in the city. This has been the venue for everything from concerts by Pavarotti and heavy rock bands, to displays of the latest cars and toy fairs, indoor football, boxing, basketball, children's shows, and a whole list of commercial and cultural, and leisure activities. The only difference from Madison Square Garden is that it only seats 13,500.
