What To Expect
On this tour you will visit one of Colombia's prettiest colonial towns - Villa de Leyva, a small preserved village located at just 3 hours drive from Bogotá.
On the way to Villa de Leyva, we will stop at Boyaca's Bridge, where the battle that led to the formation of the Republic of Colombia was fought. From the road you will be able to see the towns of Tocancipá, Gachancipá, Chocontá, Villapinzón and Ventaquemada
Villa de Leyva was founded in 1572 around Plaza Mayor, which is the largest cobbledstoned square is in the country, and it is surrounded by antique colonial buildings. Explore the village by strolling alond the narrowed streets and see the white-washed façades with rustic wooden doors before grabbing a cute souvenir in one of the many handicraft shops.
Then, visit El infiernito ("Little Hell") - an ancient Muisca shrine used to calculate the correct time for harvest, as well as Pozos Azules("Blue Ponds") - a magical place where the water is vivid blue.
Finally, you will stop at Raquira, a nearby town which is considered to be Colombia's craft work capital and one of its prettiest towns. From there, you will return to Bogotá, and at the end of the tour you will be dropped off at your hotel or at a convenient place within the urban area.
