The house of Rafael Nunez - Cartagena de Indias

The house of Rafael Nunez was acclaimed in 1848 by the father of Dona Soledad Roman, from the fisher named Nicolas Ballesteros. About ten years later, the house was burnt down by a fire and a second construction was launched. Beside it, is found the monument of Rafael Nunez in the Apolo park as well as the Retreat del Cabrero.

The president Nunez has lived in this house during many years which is situated in the quarter El Cabrero. Declared as a national monument in 1950 and in 1978, it was restored by the National Touristic Office of Colombia. Today, we can visit it all by discovering a museum, a library given by Eduardo Lemaitre and a historical record archive.
