Step inside to explore several rooms filled with original furniture, decorative items, and personal pieces, including Bolivar's writing desk, sword, and uniform.

  • The place is like a garden (not so well curated) but safe for walking. Sometimes there are some exibitions related to Simon Bolivar.

  • Simon Bolívar is such an important person in S.A. history that this lovely place is a must. It is hard to get a taxi from here. You have to walk to the very end of the Plaza de Periodistas.

  • Go, it a beautiful property on your walk back down from Monserrate. The garden and house was beautiful. It was a nice maybe hour to spend.
  • Surprised to see that El Libertador had quite a European taste for the era, not to mention great choice of place for the house, nice garden and perfect dining room with French China. Being from Europe, we have learnt something new on the history of Grand Colombia.
