La ciudad de Santiago de los Caballeros de Mérida es la capital del municipio Libertador y del estado Mérida y una de las principales localidades de los Andes venezolanos. Fue fundada en 1558, formando parte de la Nueva Granada, sin embargo, pasó a pertenecer a la Capitanía General de Venezuela, jugando un papel activo durante la Guerra de Independencia.
Mérida posee más de 200.000 habitantes y un área metropolitana que alcanza las 350.000 personas siendo además el mayor centro estudiantil y turístico del occidente venezolano, es sede de la prestigiosa Universidad de Los Andes y ostenta el teleférico más alto y segundo más largo del mundo.
Esta ciudad se asienta sobre una meseta enclavada en el valle del río Chama, que la recorre de extremo a extremo. La localidad de Mérida se encuentra situada a una altitud de 1.600 msnm. Como telón de fondo se yergue en el horizonte merideño la cumbre más elevada del país: el pico Bolívar.
The Venezuelan city of Mérida is capital of the state of the same name, Mérida State, as well as the state's Libertador Municipality. Known as La Ciudad de los Caballeros, ("The City of Gentlemen"), the city is considered one of the most attractive tourist destinations in Venezuela.
Mérida has a population of 204,879 (2001 Census) summed up with the surrounding settlements of Ejido (estimated 200,000) and Tienditas del Chama (50,000-100,000), making it a medium conurbation if one considers the entire valley. The city is filled with a highly active cultural life.
The weather and natural scenery of the city are one of its well known attributes. Although at a tropical latitude, its climate is relatively mild (daily high temperatures around 20 to 25 °C), with easy access to Venezuela's highest mountains in the Andes (some of them reaching the snow line) where temperature can go below freezing point.
As told in www.natoura.com, 'In Mérida, daytime temperatures are usually around 23 to 25 °C, but on overcast days they can reach as low as 7 to 10 °C. In the mountains at night, the temperature can get down to 0 °C, and at higher altitudes it can drop to -5 °C. So goes the saying in the tropical Andes, "summer by day, winter by night"'.
Mérida is home to the University of the Andes (http://www.ula.ve), known by its Spanish acronym ULA. It also hosts the world's longest and highest cablecar, the French-built Mérida Cable Car, rising to 4765 meters (15,633 ft) across 12.5 km in four stages. Mérida also boasts the Heladería Coromoto, ice cream parlor noted in the Guinness Book of Records as having the most flavors. Mérida is an ideal place for any of a wide variety of outdoor sports and activities. (wikipedia)
