Visits to the surroundings of Villa de Leyva privately - 4h

Through the ages, Villa de Leyva reveals its captivating past. At the Archaeological Fossil Museum, we contemplate a fossilized chronosaurus, a giant witness to the birth of the Andes cordillera.
Then, head to the pre-Columbian site of Monquira, where several phalluses rise towards the sky, once used by the Muisca to fertilize the earth during the solstices and equinoxes.
Finally, the convent of Santa Ecce Homo can be visited, a testimony of religious syncretism and a tool for evangelization of the Dominican friars. Each place, a page of history, reveals the cultural richness of this Colombian region.
