    Quite surprised and pleased with the detail and engineering of this casa. Well worth the visit. Around every corner you are met with another delightful artistic surprise.

    The largest main square across little towns in Colombia, beautifully preserved in an entire colonial style. The view is clean. An ideal place to sit down, talk and view people passing by

    Nice to know that Colombia makes good quality wines. World class educational tool in wine culture. Very nice wine tasting and pairing. The view with the lake is awesome

    If you like religious art and history it's a good place to visit. Building it's similar to other monasteries in Boyacá, but beautiful and in a very good state of conservation.

    We went to this museum today and payed 24000 for both of us and that included English speaking tour. Very interesting it’s small but worth a visit. We walked there from the centre it was easy enough but coming back is a lot up hill so make sure you have some water with you.

    Good place to enjoy with children. The tour is entertaining and the tour guides are very kind. The representations of dinoraurios are very real. Good place to visit.

    Nice place to walk around, trees and breeze create a great atmosphere. Hiking is not demanding just enough to enjoy the view.

    I like it not only bc they have a guide (in spanish, I don’t know if they have it in english) that explains the history of the museum and the story and context of the pieces, and the big kronosaurius, but also bc it is a place founded and kept by the community. The profits goes to the maintenance of the museum and for the local farmers and their families.

    Me gustó no solo por su guia, sus explicaciones y exhibición, sino tambien porque fue fundado y es manejado por la comunidad. Las ganancias se reinvierten en el lugar y en la comunidad.

    A cracking hike up through montane rain forest into the Paramo and an extremely peaceful end at the sacred lake. Not for the faint hearted but with a guide there is a lot of interest.

    We visited late afternoon and experienced the labyrinth as a family. It was wonderfully explained and guided by Monica.
    A very special spiritual event reconnecting our family.
    The advertising of Fibas should put more emphasis on this experience. Much more than a garden.

    Form the outside it may not look spectacular but the location from this church and the inside make it really beautiful.
    At night lots of people are sitting in front of the church and we had the luck to see two marriages, super nice!!!

    Went to this attraction as part of a tour. To be honest I probably wouldn’t have chosen to go but it was included in the price and I’m therefore not going to say no. I’m the end it was actually a lovely couple of hours. The guides at the site didn’t speak English but our tour guide translates everything and the information was really interesting.
    The attraction is mainly an ostrich farm but other animals are based here also.
    The highlight was going in to the pen with the ostrich’s. Amazing! Something I don’t think they’d allow in the uk but no such concerns in Colombia. If nothing else done great selfies were captured.
    Overall this was top fun!

    Check the open hours, but do visit...right on the main square with lots of artwork and easy to read (in Spanish) plaques. Worth a look see, especially if you want to test your Spanish.

    Villa de Leyva boasts some of the most in-tact examples of dinosaur fossils in Colombia. Most notably the Sauropods, that lived in the small seas created as Colombia rose from the ocean. Its a great place to take children and stoke their imaginations.
