Guillermo Quevedo Zornoza House


This house from the 17thcentury is located at number 7-69 on 13thStreet. It has twelve bedrooms, two patios and a colonial style great room, and contains the memorabilia of several generations of the Quevedo family who were patrons of the arts – literature, poetry, music and painting.  It safeguards objects from past centuries, most notably articles used by Independence heroes like Bolívar, Santander and Nariño, includes a hall for exhibits and concerts, and is maintained by the Zipaquirá National Foundation known as "Funzipa".  The poet Roberto Mac-Douall was born in this house.
