  • It is a very nice Memorial, located at no more than 20 minutes of Paipa. I recommend the 'virtual' tours air making with the use of drone. The view of the boyacense landscape is beautiful.

  • It is the second time I visit it, I have always felt that it is a beautiful place, steeped in history and a worthy tribute to those heroes who fought for our freedom in the midst of great hardship. Startles me how monumental this place. However, I feel what is neglect of the authorities by allowing street vendors to take ownership of the place and obstruct the visibility of allusive plates that are starting to climb the stairs. What a pity, because the bad news is that they do not put them conditions and will gradually be more.

Where to stay in Paipa

In the hillside town center sit the main accommodations in Paipa, with hotels mid-range to luxury dotted throughout the attractive knot of main and side streets. Down the hill and by the lake, a few hotels with larger grounds boast extensive views of the lake and a range of facilities. In the surrounding rural areas, a nice selection of spas and resort-style hotels provide relaxing experiences and themed rooms. To really dive into the natural charm of the region, look to stay at one of the campsites that sit by the main regional roads cutting through the landscape.
