This gorgeous colonial mansion was the home of former president and poet Rafael Núñez, who was the driving force behind La Regeneración movement of 1884 and the seminal 1886 constitution (Colombia is currently on its ninth iteration), which transformed a messy federal government structure into a centralized system with increased presidential powers. Immaculately restored and now functioning as a well-conceived museum, guided tours of the home take in the understated rooms decorated in period style, including a delightful patio dining room and rustic kitchen. Throughout the home, mementoes, documents, artifacts, memorabilia, antiques (including Núñez’s lavish desk), and pictures of his time in Panama and his funeral evoke the esteemed president’s life.
