  Galipan, mountain, vegetation, flowers that is it
by carolinaEspada

You will not find a single shop in Galipan. Nothing. Just the gardens and flower plantations of the local people.

Most of the flower shops in Caracas, the city near by, are brought from these hills on the mountain top.

What to buy: Fresh, really fresh, cutted in front of your eyes, flowers.

People from Caracas, often buy flowery plants as well and, once in the city, at home, plant them in their gardens or in flower pots in their balconies.

What to pay: Not much. They will charge the same amount they charge flowers shops in Caracas. In those shops in the city is where they raise the price of the flowers.

Address: All over Galipan.
Directions: Walk arround. See which is your favorite flower plantation and buy six, a dozen...
Theme: Flowers

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
