  • This old finca is so beautiful. We didn't know the story behind the house, but the setting alone was worth the drive. We also drove up the mountain behind the house until there was no more pavement. 
  • Stroll to the history guided by a story full of love and romance, excellent experience, give you opportunity to get dressed in time and take good photos and buy souvenir! Excellent

  • A typical upper class of the region's 19th-century hacienda. It is in excellent condition and is one of the stories of the most important romantic novel of Colombia.
