Good place to learn Colombian history

The museum is well preserved and organized. You will be able to learn some Colombian history and Simón Bolivar. The trees around the place are nice and pretty. Well preserved

easy cab ride from Santa Marta. Clean with amazing Ficus trees. The patriotic altar impressive and the hacienda very authentic. Botanic gardens a work in progress but interesting. Many huge iguanas made for comic relief. The art museum had some interesting pieces. Good for history and art afficionados.

Nice excursion to go if you are interesting in historic sites. It is the quinta (farm house, originally sugar factory) where Simon Bolivar died. You can see the interior from those days and have a nice walk in the tropical garden. They also have a small art museum, which was interesting. You can easily go there by local bus. On... More

The Quinta is set in a beautiful environment. The trees, gardens and iguanas are all very interesting. The museum areas and the buildings are very beautiful and interesting. I feel I learned a lot about the history and the place where Bolivar spent his last days. It is not difficult to get to and there are taxis available when you... More

If love south-american history, this is place is a must see. You definitely want to take a guide, they'll teach you a lot from Simon Bolivar live and last days. Appart from the history, is pretty nice and relaxing.

Can't believe this is the last place Bolivar spent before he past away! I mean, it needs A LOT OF INVESTMENT in easy and logical things, such as: maintance of gardens and overall; easy self guided tours or brochures. The young high school students that are offered as guides at the entrance shouldn't be the only history telling source! This... More

...but not the most exciting either. Some nice gardens and some informative boards about Simon Bolivar. The art galleries weren't bad either, but nothing to really write home about.
