Casa Fuerte (strong house) is a national historic monument. Initially constructed as a convent, in 1811 during the independence war, it was taken by the founders of the republic and turned into a fortification by SImon Bolivar to defend the city from the attacks of his opponents. After several attacks the house was taken and destroyed in 1817. It stands now as a reminder of the independence spirit. There is a statue of Eulolia Buroz, a woman who died in its defense.
