Venezuela is a country famous for its amalgamation of rich, diverse and complex cultures that has been influenced by the original Venezuelan natives to the Spanish and Africans who arrived after the Spanish conquest. Venezuelan art, enriched by the likes of painters Francisco Arturo Michelena Castillo, Antonio Herrera Toro, and Martín Tovar y Tovar is famous worldwide. Also known for its beautiful buildings and churches, the nation has been the homeland of prominent architects including Carlos Raúl Villanueva who designed the Central University of Venezuela—a World Heritage Site. Venezuelan literature which saw rapid development following the War of Independence was dominated by noted writers like Rómulo Gallegos, Teresa de la Parra, Arturo Uslar Pietri, Adriano González León, and Miguel Otero Silva. Indigenous music in the nation has gained much popularity in the modern times thanks to the efforts of singers and musicians like Pedro Elías Gutiérrez, Iván Pérez Rossi, and Rafael Bolívar Coronado. Venezuela is also home to numerous beautiful and talented women who have done their nation proud by winning several international beauty pageants like Miss Universe and Miss World.
