In 1820, the government of Nueva Granada donated this house to Simón Bolívar in gratitude for his quest for independence. Bolívar owned the house for 10 years, though he was off fighting other campaigns in Peru and Venezuela for much of that time. Colombian government acquired the house and turned it into a museum in 1922. It was recently restored to its original state, the way it was when Bolívar lived in the house. Many of El Libertador’s personal belongings can be found here.
