Full description
Discover Villa de Leyva on a full-day guided tour. See some of the most well-preserved colonial structures in Colombia, and admire the town's vibrant culture, historical sights, and striking natural beauty. Start your adventure at the breathtaking Sisga Dam. Then, head north to Raquira, a small town known for its traditional pottery. Next, take a short drive to Villa de Leyva’s Square: the largest entirely cobbled square in South America. Visit the Paleontological Museum and marvel at the fossils taken from the valley where Villa de Leyva is located. Learn their fascinating history dating back to the Cretaceous era. Stop for a quick break at a traditional restaurant and enjoy a local breakfast. Once ready, continue towards the hills to the Pozos Azules. Admire the blue-green reflection of the sky in these mineral-rich pools. Next stop: the Terracotta House. See the house made entirely out of clay and famously called "the largest piece of pottery in the world." Take some time to explore the quaint streets at your own pace before stopping once more for a delicious lunch.

We spent a very pleasant day with the guide Cristian and the driver Miguel. I recommend doing all the tours alongside these two. They introduced us to local food, the history of each place, always very attentive. They were with us everywhere. Vila Leyva is quite far from Bogota, yet the trip was amazing.
