Also within Candelaria, this has a staggering amount of mind-blowing gold from the Indian and pre-Spanish days. Really pretty stuff, even if you don’t like museums. Be sure and check out the “musica raft” while you’re there. That’s my favorite piece.

History Museum
“A Must :-) It is the oldest in the country and one of the oldest in the continent, built in 1823. Its fortress architecture is built in stone and brick. The plant includes arches, domes and columns forming a sort of Greek cross over which 104 prison cells are distributed, with solid wall façade. The museum houses a collection of over 20,000 pieces including works of art and objects representing different national history periods. Permanent exhibitions present archeology and ethnography samples from Colombian artefacts dating 10,000 years BC, up to twentieth century indigenous and afro- Colombian art and culture.”
