Tenjo

Sightseeing
Tenjo is a municipality and town of Colombia in the department of Cundinamarca.HistoryTenjo in Muisca language literally translates "in the big mouth", and it is believed that Tenjo was a previous native settlement. On the 7 of May, 1637, it was decided that the first church of the town was to be built by Alonso Serrano Hernández after being hired by Juan de Vera, Cristóbal Gómez de Silva, Juan de Orejuela and Juan de Artieda. The church was completed on August 17, 1645. By the year of 1778, there was a population of 1,009 people and 211 families, excluding 983 other native people that inhabited Tenjo.EconomyTenjo's economy is mainly based on horticulture and stock-breeding. Thanks to its relatively close position to Bogotá, Tenjo is starting to become part of its suburbs and with many schools being established here that have collaborated with this effect.Sister cities : Las GabiasNotable People from Tenjo Crisanto Luque Sánchez (1889–1959), Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church.
