Back Previous Nine Mile

Nine Mile

Nine Mile is a small village in the Dry Harbor Mountains where the legendary Bob Marley was born and where, after his untimely death, he was placed to eternal rest. This is where Bob Marley spent his childhood, and from this place, he drew inspiration in his work. Today there is a museum and two mausoleums. In one is buried Bob Marley and in the other Cedella Booker, his mother. This place is the center of pilgrimage for admirers of Marley's music, and Rastafarians, although Marley died as an Orthodox of the Ethiopian Church. The visitor should be prepared for the excessive commercialization of this place, especially by fake guides who will invent all kinds of stories for a few dollars from tourists. Don't let such details change your perception of the work of the great man!
