The Sierra Nevada National Park (PNSN) is an important National Park of Venezuela located between Mérida and Barinas states in the west of the country. It was created on May 2, 1952, by decree of President Germán Suárez Flamerich, in order to protect the Sierra Nevada de Mérida in the Andes.

It was the second national park decreed, after Henri Pittier National Park, which became the first Venezuelan national park 15 years earlier.
