Paradise found in Curacao
Welcome to Landhuis Kenepa. This Plantation, located in the western part of Curaçao, is named after the fruits of the Kenepatree and is a sprawling country estate constructed in 1693. In 2005, its buildings were fully restored by the government’s Monument Foundation.
Although it was once one of Curaçao’s largest and wealthiest plantations, producing divi-divi seed-pots and sheep wool, this location is truly best known in the island’s history as the place where the seeds of slave emancipation first took root. Though slavery was not officially abolished on Curaçao until 1863, the road to emancipation began right here at Landhuis Kenepa.
