Boyaca

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.
Start off your visit on the 17th (Wed): pause for some serene contemplation at Iglesia de San Ignacio, examine the collection at Casa Del Fundador Gonzalo Suarez Rendon, and then make a trip to Parque Central y Feria Dulce de Iza. Keep things going the next day: get engrossed in the history at Capilla y Museo de Santa Clara la Real, then don't miss a visit to Pueblito Boyacense, and then contemplate the long history of Tibasosa.

Villa de Leyva

— 4 nights
Positioned away from major trade routes and exploitable resources, the colonial town of Villa de Leyva has been largely left alone--leaving a window into the 16th century that has become one of Colombia's most popular attractions.
Villa de Leyva is known for nature, museums, and historic sites. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: don't miss a visit to Hotel Plaza Mayor Villa de Leyva, get curious at Centro de Investigaciones Paleontologicas - CIP, admire the striking features of Casa Terracota, and see the interesting displays at Museo Paleontológico.
