The Most Touristic Town of Colombia, South America

A few hours from Bogota the capital of Colombia in a high altitude desert-like terrain lies Villa de Leyva, in the department of Boyaca. A well preserved and very quaint town with a history going back to prehistoric times. Villa de Leyva offers a little bit of everything for all types of tourists. Its history began during the Jurassic Period, with evidence of many fossils and remains of sea life. The most notable finding is the 35-foot aquatic reptile known as the Kronosaurus, which was uncovered towards the outskirts of town in 1977.

The Clay Village
Welcome To Raquira!

The Clay Village

In the heart of Colombia exists a town full of many dynamic and productive artists. Their style is a fusion of Indigenous, Spanish and Modern styles. They work in every color and material available, in fact the entire town has been elaborately hand painted. They are a very creative group, working with clay, paint, wood, metal, stone, natural fibers, used tires, pretty much anything they can get their hands on. I recently visited this amazing town, which is called Raquira, in the department of Boyaca. I like to go there whenever I have some time off from work.
