Quinta de San Pedro Alejandrino, Santa Marta

4.4
#1 of 6 in Museums in Magdalena Department
Simon Bolivar spent the last two weeks of his life at Quinta de San Pedro Alejandrino. A Spanish supporter of Colombia's independence, who at the time produced rum, honey, and sugar on the estate, invited Bolivar to rest at the 17th-century colonial villa before his planned trip to Europe. Today, the estate features several monuments dedicated to Bolivar, including a massive "Altar de la Patria," a museum exhibiting works by artists from the countries he helped liberate, and a botanical garden inhabited by iguanas. Look for the decadent marble bathtub, which is for many visitors the highlight of the tour.

  • A great break from the beach for half a day, and well worth the short taxi ride from the historic centre  more »
  • In addition to the importance for the history of our Bella Colombia. Marriages there are majestic!

  • Not far from the city, accessible by local bus. We offer a guide, we were told a student to whom a propina is recommended, in fact he was a schoolboy, who dutifully recited the comment that he had learned well. This is the House where the national hero Simon Bolivar, Colombia must hero is dead, not the lesser town without its Bolivar square or Park Bolivar.Le Park surrounding this House is nice, relaxing, you can breathe the air of the countryside.

  • Beautiful place although it costs 30% more to enter if you are not Colombian. My wife paid $15,000 I was charged $21,000. Despite having been resident for several years. Not very encouraging for tourists if they find out.
  • This place is a must if you're at least a bit interested in Colombian and even South American history, architecture and art. There are great things to learn here, and you can also enjoy a nice walk in a place filled with nature.
  • Had lots fun sun was hot protect yourself from the sun dont ackt scared like tour going to get robbed makes you look like a scardy cat
  • Historical lovely place. Has many trees over 300 years old, and has some items used by Simon Bolivar
  • interesting place to visit, if you want to know a little more about the last days of the liberator Simon Bolivar, and the customs of the time. Doing it with a guide is my recommendation so you can take advantage of the visit. the cost of admission is 15 thousant pesos and the guide is a voluntary tip.
