Located on the northeast corner of Plaza Bolívar, La Casa del Florero (the House of the Vase), also known as the Museo del 20 de Julio, dates back to the late 16th century and was built for the eldest son of one of the founders of the city. It was here that a dispute over a vase, between Spaniard José González Llorente and Colombians Antonio and Francisco Morales, led to the War of Independence. The museum’s 10 rooms, which feature independence memorabilia, are fine examples of early Colombian colonial architecture.
