After you’ve soaked up the sun, you can pay your respects to the legendary Bob Marley. Open from 9:30am to 6:30pm, with an admission of $12, the Bob Marley Centre & Mausoleum is located in the village of Nine Mile. Here among derelict farms is the two-room shanty where Marley lived from ages six to 13. It is filled with family memorabilia including photographs and other mementos from the man’s career. This is also the site of the so-called mausoleum, which Marley shares with his half-brother.
There is an on-site vegetarian restaurant and of course a shop or two that sells Marley’s music.
The must-visit time for diehard fans is February 6, Marley’s birthday, and this is when reggae fans descend on Nine Mile for a festival of shows. Son Ziggy Marley often appears each year.
After taking in reggae beat, you can visit the Seville Great House, Heritage Park, which was built by the British in 1745. This modest great house contains exhibits of five centuries’ worth of Jamaican history, with artifacts used by the native tribes to African slaves. A small theater presents a 15-minute historical film about the area and the house. Open daily from 9am to 5pm, admissions is $4.
