Bob Marley Centre and Mausoleum

Bob Marley Centre and Mausoleum Review

Travelers with an interest in Bob Marley won't want to miss Nine Mile, the community in the parish of St. Ann where the reggae legend was born and is buried. Today his former home is a shrine to his music and values. Tucked behind a tall fence, the site is marked with green and gold flags. Tours are led by Rastafarians, who take visitors through the house and point out the single bed that Marley wrote about in "Is This Love." Visitors also step inside the mausoleum where the singer is interred with his guitar. The site includes a restaurant and gift shop. It is best to take a guided excursion from one of the resorts. If you're driving here yourself, be ready for some bad roads. And note that the hustlers that meet you outside the Bob Marley Centre are some of the most aggressive in Jamaica.
