Landhuis Chobolobo

The Chobolobo Mansion or Country Estate was built in the early 1800's. The Country House is located in the center of a 10 hectares of land. The property's history is rather sketchy, but very probably the country house never had any other use than to serve as a country residence for wealthy merchants. It is close to Schottegat to the north-east of Punda.

Shortly after the Spaniards discovered Curaçao in 1499, they started planning the agricultural development of Curaçao. One of the plants they carried with care on their long sea voyages from Spain was the so-called "Valencia Orange". But due to the different climate and soil conditions, this juicy fruit changed into a bitter, almost inedible product.

In short, the project was forgotten and the "misfits" of the once proud "Valencia Orange" grew wild and left abandoned eventually remained untouched. It was not until decades later, that someone discovered that the peels of this orange contained ethereal oil with an extraordinary pleasing fragrance.

Since 1946 Chobolobo houses the distillery Senior Co, which produces the famous Blue Curaçao Liqueur. While visiting the distillery, you can also get a good impression of the interior and exterior of the landhouse.
