“Very pretty grounds, museum, interesting place”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

This place, like the city has a lot of history. The grounds are very large and they are very well maintained. They have college students, who for a donation of your choice will give you a tour around the grounds. There are different rooms that host a small art collection. It was a great place. Worth the visit if you are interested in Simon Bolivar and Colombian history.

“A beautiful historical site”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Whether you are interested in history or just want to enjoy beautiful gardens, La Quinta de San Pedro Alejandrino is a must place to visit. We were provided with an English speaking guide which was a nice touch. The tour is well worth the time if you are visiting Santa Marta.
