President Hugo Chávez died on 5th of March, 2013 in Caracas "Carlos Arevalo" Military Hospital. The next day of his decease, the corpse was taken to "Los Proceres", headquarters of the Militar Academy of Venezuela, where the wake was installed.

Eleven days of mourning were proclaimed, during which half of Venezuelan population waited up to thirty hours to have the possibility to seeing the President´s corpse.

Nicolás Maduro, the new President, announced that Chávez would be embalmed and entombed in the "Cuartel de la Montaña" (Mountain Barracks), an old Historic Militar Museum.

Presidents and representatives from diverse countries attended the funeral, being Evo Morales, Cristina Kirchner and Raúl Castro amongst them.
