Villa de Leyva

Villa de Leyva ©
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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Villa de Leyva: Vargas Swamp Lancers (in Paipa), Parque Central y Feria Dulce de Iza (in Iza) and Puente de Boyaca (in Boyaca). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Museo Paleontológico, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Monasterio Del Santo Eccehomo, don't miss a visit to Hotel Plaza Mayor Villa de Leyva, and explore the activities along Pozos Azules.

Plan a Villa de Leyva trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

You can take a bus from Zipaquira to Villa de Leyva in 2 hours. Alternatively, you can drive. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
