Country house on Curacao
Fun Curaçao

Content overview

Curaçao is currently an independent country that belongs to the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Curaçao used to be a colony of the Netherlands. The island was divided among private owners who managed plantations. Houses were built on these plantations so that the owners and the family could live here. Almost all plantation houses are built on a hill so that they had a good overview of the plantation. In this blog the top 3 country houses in Curaçao are discussed.

When slavery was abolished many plantations had to close. They ran out of slaves to do the hard labor, which made the plantation houses no longer important. After many plantation houses had expired, it was decided to refurbish these 'Country houses' because this is characteristic of the history of Curaçao. It is therefore also very interesting to visit these country houses during your stay on Curaçao. In this way you get to know the history of Curaçao well, but also to form an image.

Top 3 known Country houses of Curaçao:

Country house Ascencion

Landhuis Ascencion has existed since 1672 and is located in a former Indian village. It is a large and spacious Mansion and beautifully restored. The Mansion is currently also used by the Royal Netherlands Navy.

Country house Groot Santa Martha

Landhuis Groot Santa Martha dates from 1700 and is also called Landhuis Groot Sint Maarten. Special about this country house is that it is U-shaped. There are only a few Country houses of this shape. This country house is one of the largest country houses on Curaçao.

At the moment there is a foundation and it is used as a workplace for people with mental and physical disabilities. The nice thing is that there is also a greenhouse here with beautiful tropical plants.

Landhuis Dokterstuin

Landhuis Dokterstuin is a special country house dating from the 17th century. It is a large country house with two floors and a special garden.
