  • Historic place, great staff
  • Nice!
  • Really nice place to know a bit more about the history of the man who went to jail for translating and distributing the Human Rights.
  • It is a Museum of volunteers, the people are very friendly the most important attraction of course is the House. It is important to make donations, although entry is free to the Museum operates with voluntary donations

  • A beautifully preserved colonial House where Antonio Nariño spent his last days. It contains elements of its history and an exhibition of furniture and furnishings typical of the time. Great place to learn more about the history of Colombia.
