Tucked away on one of the streets near Plaza Bolivar, the birthplace of El Libertador Simon Bolivar is no longer a tranquil house, thanks to its popularity. Known as Casa Natal del Libertador, the quaint 17th Century house is a time machine to the colonial era. A single story house, the Casa opens up to beautiful courtyards and patios. While majority architecture is Spanish Colonial, the front facade is built in stone which differs from the characteristic colonial houses. The corridors, antique furniture and chambers depict Bolivar's journey from being a child to becoming Venezuela's most prominent national leaders. Artworks by Tito Salas showing Bolivar's significant life events are displayed inside the house. This house is a labyrinth of memories and a peek into the life of one of the most celebrated heroes of the nation.
