  • We did step and slept at the monasterio arriving on horseback. The site looks great. The hotel is new and functional, the rooms are very clean, distributed around a large patio, a stage of charm between Villa de Leyva and Ráquira. There are two entrances to a monastery, a larger, which is the main road and a second passing through a small village and gives, after a charming bridge, on her run of the convent.

  • This monastery has a little museum, it shocked me to see the tools they used to inflict pain to themselves as a way to "punish the flesh". Thanks God times have changed.
  • 20 minutes of Ráquira, this large and beautiful shrine makes you to feel at home. The place is too cozy, the service is very good, they have restaurant and a large fireplace; the majority of the rooms are of 4 beds and a bathroom. The Church is beautiful and large patios make game with vegetation.
