It was very interesting to go there. A good piece of history - and completely free of charge. No fees! If you happen to spend some time in Caracas it's one recommendation to do.

If you are interested in Simon Bolivar, this is one you should see. A good compliment to visiting his mausoleum. The tour can take 20-30 minutes

Even though most of the decoration of the house are not the real that was used by Simon Bolivar, this house is suposse to be the place where He was born!

Is amazing to be inside the place where The Liberator was born. They have everything in there... beds, pictures, medals and there's the same tree used by Bolivar to study and read under. I think about this place every time.
