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.

  • 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.

Where to stay in Bogota

Many visitors to Bogota stay in La Candelaria, a colonial-era neighborhood in the city center where you can find plenty of decent hostels and mingle with tourists from around the globe. Staying in this area also puts you within walking distance of the city's major museums and best nightlife options. If you prefer to sleep in a quieter area and visit this busy district during the day, consider accommodations in the northern section of the city, which includes the upscale neighborhood Zona T.
