Overview

Villa De Leyva was founded in 1572 and named after the first president of Nueva Granada, Andrés Díaz Venero de Leyva. It is a perfect example of a colonial town in Colombia. Come wander the quiet streets of this living relic! The town is located 110 mi/175 km northeast of Bogotá. Visitors can arrive quite easily by bus or private car on the well-paved road to Tunja.

Upon arrival, you will notice that every building is whitewashed and painted with bottle-green trim. Its main square is paved with cobblestones and centered around an inviting fountain. This main plaza is one of the largest in all of South America. The cathedral is one the simplest in Colombia. Villa de Leyva has been blessed with many attractions such as the Iglesia Parroquial, Casa Cabildo, various museums and Convento de Carmen.

Our local expert will provide an educational walking tour focused on the history and significance of Villa de Leyva. Visit the historical and archaeological museums, wander the charming parks and plazas, and relax by the beautiful natural lakes only a few minutes outside of the pueblo. This is approximately a 3 hour tour.
