Fodor's Review

Simón Bolívar, the revolutionary hero who drove the Spanish from the northern half of the continent, passed the last years of his life in this rustic house with his mistress, Manuela Saenz. Built in 1800, it was donated to Bolívar in 1820 for his services to the fledgling republic. The house has a distinct Spanish flavor and a lovely garden. Gabriel García Márquez's 1989 novel, The General in His Labyrinth, portrays Bolívar's final years. Guided tours in Spanish are offered Tuesday–Sunday at 11 and 2. A weekly guided tour in English is offered each Wednesday at 11.
