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.
