Fodor's Review

Originally this building made up two mansions but has since been divided up. Two residences still belong to the original families that housed Simón Bolívar on his route through Mompox to Caracas to liberate northern South America. Although not open to the public at this writing, you can admire the outside of the building, typical of the style of homes constructed in Mompox during the colonial era. Wander along to the Piedra de Bolívar, which details the dates and days spent in Mompox by the Liberator.
