Land of Freedom

A holiday in Boyaca allows visitors to explore the area where the Colombian troops won their independence from Spain in the 19th century--thus, the city's nickname the “Land of Freedom.” Your Boyaca vacation will be enriched by bouncing between nearby colonial towns, which boast pleasant plazas, colorful buildings, and historic churches.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Boyaca: Tunja (Templo De Santo Domingo, Casa Del Fundador Gonzalo Suarez Rendon, &more) and Parque Central y Feria Dulce de Iza (in Iza). There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Pueblito Boyacense, appreciate the history behind Puente de Boyaca, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Iglesia de San Ignacio.
