Inside this house, fundamental ideas were born that later would create one of Colombia's biggest political reforms in the 19th Century: The Constitution of 1886. This was colombia's guideline document until 1991, year in which the current Carta Magna was signed.

This is a pretty little house and a nice museum. You can see the whole thing in maybe a half hour. The best thing is the price. It's free! Also, check out the little church across the street where Rafael Nunez is buried.

This is the home of Colombia's version of Thomas Jefferson, he had a fascinating life and well worth learning about. The home is well-preserved and airy, within walking distance of the old city. There are interesting displays with explanations almost all in Spanish. A few in the end were in English and Spanish.

It’s interesting to see inside a 19th-century well-to-do family’s home. Most of the rooms are bare, which makes them look more contemporary. The interior areas with porches are unusual, particularly the central hub. The site is only a few blocks from the eastern city walls and a visit doesn’t take long.

This is a free attraction. There was a guide who spoke English that toured is through. 30 minute stop. Add 10 to see the church and gardens.

Rafael Nunez did about everything including being President of Colombia. His house is very unique and is situated just a couple of blocks outside the old walls (close to the Bovedas market. Take your time to investigate this wonderful house from when times were slower than today. Across the street is a park and a church where Nunez and his wife are buried. The dining room is most unique and the posted old photos were most interesting (including one of Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis that flew to Cartagena in 1928 (one year after flying to Paris).

Just a few minutes walk from the walled city, this is a nicely preserved (and free to enter) presidential house from the 19th century. It showcases the life and times of Rafael Nunez, an important president of Colombia. Since our Spanish was very basic, we could not understand many of the written explanations. We still were able to get a sense of the period.

Just a short walk outside the walled city is the Nunez home. There is a very busy street to cross. It is free to visit.
The first floor is offices and a permanent display we did not understand as there are no signs in English. The grounds are well groomed with a covered seating area.
The second floor of the home is an interesting glimpse into the living space of what I assume were upper class Colombians of the nineteenth century (Nunez was the President of Colombia on 4 separate occasions).
There are no guides and the signs are in Spanish only.

Interesting for a little wander around Rafael Nunez' house.
You can visit most of the upstairs rooms and the majority of the main signage has an English translation.
I cruise tour as just finishing up as I arrived and there was live music and dancing, not sure how often that happens.
Would love and outdoor dining room
