Villa de Leyva

3.8
Positioned away from major trade routes and exploitable resources, the colonial town of Villa de Leyva has been largely left alone--leaving a window into the 16th century that has become one of Colombia's most popular attractions. Start your tour of Villa de Leyva in the main square, said to be the largest in Colombia. From here you can see the finely preserved whitewashed colonial architecture, including atmospheric places of worship, houses of famous residents, and government buildings. Because of its cobblestone streets and pristine architecture, Villa de Leyva has been the setting for multiple films and hosts a number of festivals throughout the year. Villa de Leyva is in Boyaca Department. Whether you only want to go to Villa de Leyva, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly Colombia tour itinerary planning site.
