Museo de la Independencia Casa del Florero, Bogota
(3.9/5 based on 90+ 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.

  • If you are Colombian or foreigner. and know a little of the history of our country. It is essential to q visities this museum. to get to this place is the same block of plaza de Bolívar. You can. a tour disfrutae q though it is not very long. you found a bit of Colombian history. the entrance at very low cost and allows you to do other activities in this area. I recommend when attempting to visit the part of history of the city is made from 2 or three of the afternoon for q give them the day.

  • In spite of the Museum, which I didn't visit, is worth noticing in this beautiful home in Bolivar Square. This is a nice example of colonial architecture of Colombia. Built between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, on the outside see the garden, the white walls and Windows and balconies.
