Tunja

(4.4/5 based on 240+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, historic sites, shopping
Sitting on the eastern range of the Colombian Andes, the city of Tunja was founded by the Spanish in the first half of the 16th century. With fascinating attractions related to the indigenous population that lived here for centuries before, a tour of Tunja can easily delve into native and colonial history through a wealth of museums and historical sites. In addition, the city hosts a range of cultural events throughout the year, and--as a stop on the Pan American Highway--remains conveniently located for exploration of the wider region's topographical and cultural attractions.
