- The birth and burial place of the reggae legend
- See Mount Zion, from where Marley drew inspiration
Bob Marley may have died in 1981 but his legend has never been stronger. He was born at his grandmother’s farm in Nine Mile, and today is buried in a marble mausoleum next to the house which serves as a museum. This indispensable Jamaica gift experience takes you up into the hills around St. Ann from Montego Bay, a spectacular journey through thick rainforest, for an illuminating guided tour of Marley’s childhood home during which you’ll gain an insight into the musician’s life, inspiration and the enduring legacy of his work.
You’ll see the rock that Marley used as a pillow when relaxing, Mount Zion, the community of such importance to Rastafarian culture, and the room that he slept in as a child. The Ethiopian church close to the house, where Marley now rests alongside his guitar, is the most memorable part of the tour. A professional Rastafarian guide will show you around throughout, telling stories and helping you to understand the importance of Bob Marley back then, and now.
