Inspirock Rating:
3.9/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web
For insight into Colombian political history, head to Casa Museo Rafael Nunez--the charming mansion of the late poet, lawyer, and president. Nunez is credited with writing the words of Colombia's national anthem, and partly of the nation's constitution of 1886. One wing of his residence now serves as a museum, where you can survey some of his personal possessions and documents. For an extra glimpse into his life and times, head to the chapel opposite the house, which holds Nunez's ashes. Not all guides will have English as a spoken language; bring a phrase book along.

  • Five minutes from the place where we stayed, we find this oasis where we met stories of the President who embodied this paradise. We like to know emblematic spaces that have their content in time and without a doubt this was one of them. We recommend visiting travellers and lovers of history.
