#1 of 10 in Historic Sites in Cauca Department
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.

  • This archeological site has much to offer! Many walks in spectacular landscapes, impressive tombs, and lots of interesting information about regional culture. The walk to the avocado is highly recommended even though is rather long and takes quite some time. Other sites take less time because they are closer to the entrance. At the end I spent two days touring all that there is and really worth much! In addition, the town is beautiful! 100% recommended!
