History Museum Museum
Revisit the final years of El Libertador, the former president of Bolivia at Casa Museo Quinta de Bolivar, a colonial house tucked away in the lush foothills of the Monserrate Mountain. Erected in the 17th century, the house became Simon Bolivar's summer residence in 1820, eventually serving as a brewery, school, and hospital after the celebrated general's death. Step inside to explore several rooms filled with original furniture, decorative items, and personal pieces, including Bolivar's writing desk, sword, and uniform. Other highlights include portraits of Bolivar's lover Manuela Saenz, as well as original tableware and weapons, displayed in rooms once used to entertain guests and to celebrate the general's military triumphs. Put Casa Museo Quinta de Bolivar into our Bogota vacation route planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • While Simón Bolívar little lived, preserved furniture and a piece of Latin American history. Beautiful gardens and a colonial House in excellent preservation will make an unforgettable visit to this place.
