Archaeological Park of Tierradentro, Inza

(4.9/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
Learn about pre-Columbian history while you’re surrounded by lush green landscape at Archaeological Park of Tierradentro. The park is known for its pre-Columbian underground, or hypogea. Find these underground tombs, which typically feature western-oriented spiral stair entrances, leading to a chamber five to eight meters below ground. Chamber walls are usually painted in red, black, and white. Some of the underground chambers contain ancient remains, although many are gone due to grave robberies that happened before the park became a protected area. Make Archaeological Park of Tierradentro a part of your Inza vacation plans using our Inza trip itinerary maker.

  • The entrance (p) in the parque arqueologico cost 25000 cop pp and is valid for two days. We have visited the two exciting museums on the first day (Museo arqueologico and ethnologico), as well as alto segovia (with beautifully preserved coloured tombs), alto el duende and el tablon (stone statues). On the second day, we then of San Andres on the alto are san andres over the alto el aguacate of next to the el hato (stone statue) up to the la pyramid (stone pyramid with tunnels, belongs no longer to the Park) moved. We were both walking on the road and have needed for the hikes including intensive spotting the graves hours per day per well 6. Panorama has liked most with alto segovia because of the well-preserved tombs and alto el aguacate due to the madness. Tips: - take sunscreen and enough beverages, the trails are mostly in the Sun - bring flashlight or headlamp (only the graves alto segovia are lit) - bring good Footwear and waterproofs. The weather can change quickly and when it rains the roads are quickly slippery - I would take two days time for the Park overall adhesive. Then you can enjoy it the most.
