Well done presentation of Jamaican history
mai de 2016
Aprendemos hoje que alguns dos que um de nós foi ensinada na Escola de Gramática jamaicano pode não ter sido tão precisos. Nosso guia, Eldon, parecia satisfeito que tivemos um pouco de conhecimento antes de chegarmos. Ele realmente gostava de corrigir a nossa equívocos e nós apreciamos sua abordagem. A área desta grande casa foi nas proximidades do primeiro Capitol, Sevilha, da Jamaica. As histórias do Taino deslocadas e escravizadas antes de ser morto por doença europeia foram informados pela qualidade exposições Museum, os conquistadores primeiro foram os espanhóis que trouxe o primeiro escravos africanos; espanhóis foram seguidos pelos britânicos que trouxe mais escravos e controlo estabelecidas brutal sobre tudo o que se mexa. Entretanto a produção de açúcar continuou sobre esta propriedade. O docente também discutiu a abolição na Jamaica, que enquanto muito mais cedo do que os EUA, levou 30 anos para implementar plenamente. Havia muitos artefatos no visor. Talvez o melhor de todos aqueles foram os muito intacta de pedra calcária entalhes encontrados nas ruínas de lojas do artista. Não havia muita informação fornecida sobre os habitantes da grande casa, mas a imagem precisa histórico foi feita para o mais provável teria sido conjectura e lore. Se você gosta de história, por favor levar um par de horas e viajar até este lane na saída da rodovia principal perto de Ocho Rios e voltar na história. Nós não poderia ajudar mas reflectir sobre história nos relacionados ao tratamento de americanos nativos americanos e africanos nos Estados Unidos. A visita nos deixou com muita coisa para falar e pensar nisso.

We spent a fantastic time (c90 mins) at Seville Great House in the company of our guide, Eldon. Eldon is a passionate, knowledgeable and extremely informative guide. He has a great depth of knowledge on Jamaican history (in which us Scots bear great responsibility!) plus the history of the house and surrounding estate.
We also spent time at the end discussing contemporary Jamaica, some British history & politics.
I would highly recommend this historical attraction if you want to learn about Jamaica.
Thanks Eldon.

Amazing tour! Lots of indigenous and colonial artifacts and a friendly guide who was deeply informed. Presented the complex history of Jamaica with appropriate balance of respect and good humor. After the house tour, had a WONDERFUL experience watching a dance troupe perform traditional dances.

This was the second great house I've visited in Jamaica and it was the better of the two. Seville Great House is a national monument and is respectfully focused on the story of the Jamaican people rather than the contents of the house and the family who owned it. It was informative and the whole experience didn't leave me with mixed emotions about being there unlike the previous great house I visited. The whole site has a lighter atmosphere and vibe probably due to the way it addresses Jamaica's history and slavery in particular. If you're interested in history then it's worth a visit.

Learn about the history of civilization in Jamaica via an interactive and visually aesthetic Great House setting. Artefacts are well preserved and quite extensive from the colonial periods and are quite fascinatingly communicated via a tour guide associated with the JNHT. The reconstructed Great House by the grandson of the original owner has been perfectly restored and preserved without structural integrity being compromised. The estate is quite extensive and what's very interesting is the replicas of the huts of early Jamaican residents in the nearby grounds. The hilltop view overlooks an extensive portion of azure blue waters of the north coast.

This was a fascinating stop on our trip. Eldon was our guide and he was so very informative. Eldon walked us through history and then allowed for any and all questions. The exhibits were amazing and well displayed to assist in the progression of the islands occupants.

Highly recommend this stop for anyone - local, or visiting from afar, to learn a detailed history in an authentic setting with knowledgable staff.

We included this destination in an all-day private excursion to Ocho Rios from Melia Braco Village in late January, and much to our surprise, it was one of the highlights of the day. Lucked out with no cruise ship tours there at the time, and had a two hour tour of house and grounds with Michelle our very informative guide. The cultural history of Jamaica is compressed, clearly explained and brought to life in a very evocative setting that history books cannot possibly replicate. Well worth a visit even for those who may only casually interested in Jamaican history.

We learned today that some of what one of us was taught in Jamaican grammar school may not have been so accurate. Our guide, Eldon, seemed pleased that we had a little knowledge before we arrived. He really enjoyed correcting our misconceptions and we appreciated his approach. The area of this great house was in the vicinity of the first capitol, Seville, of Jamaica. The stories of the Taino being displaced and enslaved before being killed by European disease were told by the museum quality exhibits, The first conquerors were the Spaniards who brought the first African slaves; Spaniards were followed by the British who brought more slaves and established brutal control over everything in sight. Meanwhile sugar production continued on this estate. The docent also discussed abolition in Jamaica, which while much earlier than the US, took 30 years to fully implement. There were many artifacts on display. Perhaps the best of those were the very much intact limestone carvings found in the ruins of the artist's shops. There was not much information provided about the inhabitants of the great house, but the accurate historical picture made up for what most likely would have been conjecture and lore. If you like history, please take a couple of hours and travel up this lane off the main highway near Ocho Rios and go back into history. We could not help but reflect on US history related to treatment of Native Americans and African Americans in the United States. The visit left us with plenty to talk and think about.

Dubbed the birthplace of modern Jamaica, the Seville property was where Christopher Columbus first encountered the Taino Indians on May 5th 1494. Today the Heritage Park is a charming 300 acres property that allows you to step back in time to explore the very beginning of Jamaica's history and culture.

The plantation's Great House is now used as a museum which was recently renovated and offers an insightful and informative tour of the period 650 AD to late 19th century Jamaica when the Taino Indians, Spanish, English and African inhabited the area. There are different historical spots on the property to visit, example the early and later slave villages.

Suituated just outside the parish capital of St. Ann's Bay, Seville Heritage Park is also an ideal location for special events such as weddings, picnics, graduations, crusades, camping, dinners and meetings.

Enjoy..

BTW: I did come across an old massive water wheel that was just amazing. I truly wondered who passed this way in times passed.

I was recommended this place by the owner of one of the tour companies I contacted because I said I wanted something historical and off the beaten path. This was certainly that. We did end up renting a car and driver (cheaper than you would think in Jamaica) and this was our best stop. It is $15 per person, but we got a lovely private tour by Anthony. He was obviously very interested in his subject and knew a lot about the house. He gave us a tour that lasted about an hour and included some of the outside structures. We were really trying to learn more about the history of Jamaica, and this seems one of the best ways to do it if your cruise ship stops at Ocho Rios. I highly recommend taking a visit if you like history.
