This was a part of a ship's tour. It was the highlight to see how people lived during the times of the reunification in South America. A nice tribute to Simon Bolivar as well since he did in this place in 1830

Old Quintana where Bolivar died. Too bad none of the told functioning equipment for processing sugar cane and fermenting rum exists. Some of the told trees have died and have not been properly pruned. The rose garden in the surrounding botanical garden had zero roses. Needs some water and a gardener's love. The art gallery was interesting but several wings... More

It is a lovely place... Surrounded by lush centenary trees that will shelter your walk as you are transported back to the times of the independence. Teens from a local high school vulnerable to aid you with your tour to the last of Bolívar's hours and the adjacent art colombian and Latin American collection that is also hosted. A visit... More

I enjoyed the history tour. A very informative historical site from the very beginnings of present day Colombia.

In the top 5 for Santa Marta. Someone said in another review that Santa Marta is a "scruffy " city. I would agree with this and this makes Quinta well worth the visit. Beautiful grounds and a nice mix of history and nature. My husband is a birder and he got 10 new birds there as well.

Went at the weekend and the art museum area all closed. Botanical gardens are a complete rundown mess - nothing worth looking at - not irrigated and completely neglected. Absolutely terrible. That only leaves a very small area to look around and certainly not worth the 42,000 cop which we were charged (2 people) for entry. I don't know where... More

Walked here from our hotel. Quite interesting place. Good gardens with very big iguanas. Simon Bolivar is everywhere and this is the place where he died.

Great spot to wander around and cheap for entrance fee. Drought conditions when we were there, so ponds, botanical gardens dry, but pleasant to walk around, with some beautiful, incredibly old trees. This hacienda, where Simon Bilivar died, has some interesting parts, from statues to architecture to art gallery. There's a refreshments shop. Santa Marta is very hot, so time... More
