  • I came several times to this site and always go to Boyaca stop in this place that transports me to a not lived past but if imagined by their visible memories... A great battle of more than 4 Kms to the round where many martyrs died for the sake of freedom!

  • A spot in the road that worth getting to know. Monuments and history about the military campaign that you gave freedom to Colombia. One of the first stops if the plan is to make a tour by the beautiful province of Boyacá. During the months of December and part of January has one of the best Christmas lights shows, accompanied by a cultural and gastronomic fair captive.

  • 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.
