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.
Let the collections at Museo El Fosil and Casa Museo Antonio Narino capture your imagination. Get some historical perspective at Iglesia de Nuestra Senora del Rosario and Monasterio Del Santo Eccehomo. Change things up with these side-trips from Villa de Leyva: Tunja (Iglesia de San Ignacio & Templo De Santo Domingo) and Chiquinquira (Iglesia de la Renovacion & Convento Nuestra Señora del Rosario de Chiquinquirá). There's much more to do: explore the activities along Pozos Azules, make a trip to Hotel Plaza Mayor Villa de Leyva, admire the landmark architecture of Casa Terracota, and examine the collection at Museo Paleontológico.
