Archaeological Site El Infiernito, Villa de Leyva

2.6
#5 of 6 in Sightseeing in Villa de Leyva
Ruin Tourist Spot
Head to Archaeological Site El Infiernito, an unusual ancient area of the pre-Columbian Muisca civilisation, dubbed "little hell” by Spanish conquistadors because of its percieved Paganistic ritual practices. The 600 year old monoliths that adorn the site appear unmistakably phallic in shape, said to indicate a reverence to fertility. The archaeology links to practices of astronomy, agriculture, and religion. Remember your camera as these structures should be captured.

  • Park archaeological site that carries a lot of history. It is worth knowing before the theme before you go.

  • it's small, it's interesting..one of the few signs of the Muisca people.. but it's badly indicated, badly attended, badly managed..and not cheap to enter, considering that tours is less that 15 mins  more »
  • Is worth $ 10,500 per person Guide, 7000 input, 3000 brochure and as we thought everything was just business, we were charged to 2000 by entering and exiting the parking lot. Q mal... focused collection and not the service.
