  • It is very nice, although they do not expect an imposing bridge. Is a place wide and with much vegetation ideal to go with children and spend the afternoon or go of night in December to see them lighted. It has parking for 6,000 COP

  • It is a historical place where decorated it with lights and Christmas figures, long cold, wear warm clothes. There are typical food and a pizza restaurant. Good plan for families.

  • It is a major attraction for our country's independence history. It is a mandatory for all Colombian sight.

  • 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.
