  • All very clean, well maintained the sculptures, the bridge and the flags. Very spacious, well maintained grass and beautiful panoramic views. Free parking. If you want more information, the same police officers can talk to you about the history of the bridge and the pre-Columbian history. What does I seem to be missing is a communication between the zone and the obelisk, that after the construction of the highway, divided the area of the Obelisk of everything else, so it is difficult to get there.

  • After hearing about a bridge where a battle was fought, I was excited. Then we got there, the bridge itself was pretty underwhelming I honestly was expecting something bigger. The story behind the bridge and the lights truly made up for what it lacked(which was size, nothing else) 1.000 peso to use the restroom just as a heads up.
  • I visited the place in a very sunny day. It was wonderful. Very nice pictures
  • Espectacular
  • Patrimonio de la Nación
  • Historical heritage of Colombia, tourist stop in the Department of Boyaca, ideal for family.
