Step inside to explore several rooms filled with original furniture, decorative items, and personal pieces, including Bolivar's writing desk, sword, and uniform. Other highlights include portraits of Bolivar's lover Manuela Saenz, as well as original tableware and weapons, displayed in rooms once used to entertain guests and to celebrate the general's military triumphs.

  • Simon Bolívar is such an important person in S.A. history that this lovely place is a must. It is hard to get a taxi from here. You have to walk to the very end of the Plaza de Periodistas.  more »
  • After you are tired of wandering around Bogota come here. This is a house that Liberator Simon Bolivar lived in restored in all its grandeur and simplicity. BUT the best part for tired tourists...  more »

  • Go, it a beautiful property on your walk back down from Monserrate. The garden and house was beautiful. It was a nice maybe hour to spend.
  • Surprised to see that El Libertador had quite a European taste for the era, not to mention great choice of place for the house, nice garden and perfect dining room with French China. Being from Europe, we have learnt something new on the history of Grand Colombia.
