A great escape from the hustle and bustle of Bogotá. Get the audio for the house tour. There are some very interesting anecdotes. Beautiful gardens. Walk around Candelaria after and stop in some of the unique shops and restaurants.

Can stop by on your way down from Mount Monserrate—it's quick to visit and the grounds are pretty to walk through

The "Quinta" have been kept in good condition and almost make you think that you are there visiting with Simon Bolivar. The gardens are beautiful. If you drive you can park in front of the house. No need to go around and around.

Everywhere you travel in Colombia there is something bolivar-ian (squares, streets, statues, probably also something without an s...) so it is nice to see where he lived, how he lived, how his sword looks, and to escape into a very nice and relaxed garden....

Well-preserved and restored, this residence that once belonged to aristocrats eventually became the abode of Simon Bolivar during the almost 500 days that he on various occasions spent in Colombia.

The place and bed where Simon Bolivar passed away blew me away. I didn't expect such a well preserved place to honor the life and death of this legendary man. Every inch of the property reminds you of how he could have lived his last...More
