Archaeological Park of Tierradentro, Inza

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.

  • Tierradentro is part of a tourist complex that includes activities archaeological and nature, is a quiet place with attractive sole, full of emotion. the hypogea are "burials" indigenous located between 3 and 6 meters deep, so access to them includes adrenaline and surprise by the quality of the found items.
