Museo de la Independencia Casa del Florero, Bogota

(4/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Learn about the "cry of independence" at Museo de la Independencia Casa del Florero, housed in a colonial building of great historical importance to Bogota. The story goes that just after Napoleon overcame Spain in 1810, a local creole named Antonio Morales came to the house and demanded an ornate vase from the Spanish owner. This led to a tussle in the street that had the butterfly effect of spurring a national rebellion. Tour the museum and look for the vase in question, broken during the fight but still on display here. Pay special attention to the building's Arabic-Andalusian style.

  • a place full of magic, history and beautiful objects, the best guides... impossible, very productive tour and sales there with much knowledge and wanting not to go, the souvenir shop is not expensive, I really liked visit with my mother and my aunt and we share the same opinion.

  • Visit the Museum of the independence is a door to the last historical of Colombia, is located in the "House of the vase" that keeps the style colonial with its roof and balcony (now painted in green). The name alludes to the Spanish dealer José González Llorente who had installed their negotiation on the site and according to history has prompted an incident that I unleashed the war of independence a July 20, 1810, having a vase by unusual protagonist, as well said object although fragmented is exhibited inside. Recommendation: Go out to the balcony, is a privileged site. Visiting hours: Monday: closed Tuesday-Thursday: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Saturday and Sunday: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm enjoy Bogota. LIFE... is a trip!
