Overview

This area, which nowadays is part of the old Caracas downtown, was a rural area in Bolivar's childhood. This used to be the family´s country home, an area that at present takes up a whole block. This property was declared a National Historical Monument in 1959. Kept up with the same fervor as everything belonging to the Liberator, it recreates the environment in which little Simon spent his childhood, instructed by the great teachers Andres Bello and Simon Rodríguez. During the first years of the 19th century, it also hosted secret meetings in which the struggle for Venezuelan independence was being organized. Admission is free.
