Key Highlights

  • Visit the Boyaca Bridge, famous for the Battle of Boyacá in 1819
  • Stroll around the city of Tunja and appreciate its typical architecture
  • Travel back in time as you marvel the ancient ruins of ‘El Infiernito’


After departing Bogota, enjoy a stop at one of Colombia's historical and emblematic sites, Boyaca Bridge. Just a stone's throw away from Tunja, it was the scene of one of the greatest battles fought in the history of Colombian independence and was pivotal in its campaign.

Next, discover the city of Tunja on the eastern edge of the Andes before arriving to Villa de Leyva. Its high altitude of 2,144 meters adds to its atmosphere and fame as one of the finest colonial villages in the country. Enjoy its typical architecture, above all the Plaza Mayor, one of the largest town squares in Latin America and paving stones which take you back to colonial times.

Visit the Paleontological Museum, curated by the National University of Colombia, and the Santo Ecce Homo convent, which was founded in 1620. Its main characteristic is the church and cemetery, an example of the Mudejar art style as well as the cloister. Last on the itinerary are the ancient ruins of the Muisca Astronomical Observatory, also known as ‘El Infiernito’ (or ‘little hell’) before we make our way back to Bogota.
