    The truth the issue of the cost of the entry passes unnoticed when one enters and can be seen form as this presented House Museum, there are representative of the era objects acquired importance and cultural of the general Antonio Nariño value of the Army liberator, famous for the Declaration of human rights, so it worth getting to know its history. On the other hand the architectural elements that make up the House is very well described in very well presented posters describing the because and the era in which were built, finally only recommend to make it more interactive to involve the people of most dynamic cultural and informational programmes and make that the site is a meeting point of talks and of expressions of freedom.

    This is one of the most oldest in Villa de Leyva, and is a magnificent example if you want to know the characteristic architecture of the place, as well as offer an interesting tour that help us to know more about the history of the country. House objects were not used by Antonio Nariño, however they are very nice and give a very good perspective on the era to which they belong.
