Located in the charming town of Barichara, Colombia, Casa del Presidente is the former home of the late president Belisario Betancur. Casa del Presidente honors the history, tradition, and beauty of this 17th-century town.
Barichara is widely regarded as one of the most picturesque settlements in Colombia. Since being protected as a national monument in 1978, much of the town’s historic core has been lovingly restored. Well-heeled travelers from across Latin America come to enjoy the town’s timeless beauty, fine vistas, and relaxed pace.
Located near Chicamocha Canyon, the town is an ideal place for biking, trekking, and extreme sports. It’s also an ideal escape for those who want to relax and savor the atmosphere.
It is no wonder that Barichara means “a place of rest” in the local Guane dialect. The town’s peaceful streets invite you to slow down and savor life.
