  • Nice place where one can learn about the emeralds in Colombia. After doing the free walking tour one can visit this place for free which includes a guide. The guide was really nice and spoke ok English. The tour ends at the emerald shop where you can marvel at the wonderful pieces. For about $2,000 you can have a beautiful ring. This place is near the Gold Museum and is worth a visit.
