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.

  • "That that not known the history is condemned to repeat it" a visit interesting and pleasant, ideal for pass the time in Bogota and to its time learn a little more than our history; It is very interactive and if you topas with a guide will tell you the story in greater detail. The price is of 3,000 COP by adult and of 2,000 COP for students.
