Overview

Barichara is often known as the prettiest town in Colombia, it is a compact little hillside town on a hot plateau. Visitors will delight in the quaint simplicity of the whitewashed houses, cobbled streets and red-tiled roofs.

Barichara is a National Monument which dates back to the Spanish conquest. It features some of the most well preserved and strikingly beautiful architecture in the Americas. Barichara is perched beside the canyon of the Suarez River with a breathtaking view of the entire region. Visitors will delight in almost perfect weather year round. Its legacy is stately stone architecture which make it a unique and charming village. The village is also an inspiration for talented artists, who open their workshops to anyone who wants to obtain a magical and unforgettable souvenir to remember this region and its creative populace.

During your walking tour, you will discover the workshops of artisans who are famous for their craft, particularly the stonemasons and vegetable fiber artisans. You will also discover factories producing quality hand-rolled cigars. Note that the churches – The Immaculate Conception in the main square, the Santa Barbara Chapel to the north and the cemetery are also carved in local stone.

Be sure to stop at the viewpoint of the Suarez canyon and admire the sunset from this romantic lookout. Enjoy the royal path of colonization which will take you to the small colonial village called Guane. A 9 km trail with a small and magical village at the end – where time seems to have stopped centuries ago.

Once in Guane, you can visit the archaeological and paleontological museum. Barichara tends to be a bit quiet during the week and busier on weekends. The village is particularly well lit at night, which makes for pleasant evening walks.
