Before arriving at the Wall by the Factoria street, you can see an excellent example of an aristocrat house, whether the house Marqués de Valdehoyos.

This characteristic colonial period house, where Simon Bolivar stayed on his way to Santa marta, belonged to the famous Marquis of Val Dehoyos, whose fortune came from importing flour and slaves. Its wide facade, finely carved wooden windows, spacious gardens and lounges reflect the architectural trends of the seventeenth century.

Address: Cll. de la Factoria # 36-37
schedule: Monday to Friday from 8:30 am. to noon and from 2 pm.to 4 pm.
