  • Majestic Monument in honour of those who forged the freedom of the nation, as all boyaca gives us landscapes not to be missed, boasts Museum, area of Commerce, gastronomy and symbolism. With luck you can find a characterized historian of the time, who by very little will tell you the story that holds this beautiful place.

  • Who travels by BOYACA definitely have to know this moment, in which according to our history were fought important battles in search of freedom. Its design is outstanding and the arrangement of its elements that generates an impressive view from any angle. In addition to being a tourist site annually held band contests, what this region, makes it more attractive also has two outputs one for the city of paipa and the other to DUITAMA, so when it comes to travel, there are several options step.
