Monument Tourist Spot
Visit the historic Puente de Boyaca, a bridge that pinpoints the location of the legendary Battle of Boyaca. Situated in a lush green valley, the bridge is surrounded by monuments dedicated to the famous battle that was won by the forces of Simon Bolivar and granted independence to Colombia. Cross the Teatinos River via the small bridge, which was actually built a century before the iconic battle took place there. Nearby you can view the other monuments, such as the Von Miller sculpture dedicated to Bolivar, the statue of General Francisco de Paula Santander, or the perpetually burning Liberty Fire.

  • We visited the famous bridge of Boyaca in a patriotic day (20 July) which gives more emotion to the visit. It is a quiet and pleasant place that transports you to the history of the ancestors and revives the proud to be Colombian. It doesn't take long

  • Nice views and very well maintained place. Entrance and parking are free.
  • Quite interesting but a guided tour could improve the experience here. Parking is quite expensive and the museum is closed most of the times.
  • Historic place from Colombian independency. In December has the very nice light show.
  • Its a really nice stop with some beautiful and historically meaningful monuments to take picture with.
  • A nice place. I like that
