Villa de Leyva Colombia Tours and Activities

A stroll through its cobblestone streets and admiring the central patios of old houses and stopping for a moment to take a deep breath of the cool, dry and refreshing air and gaze in the direction of Iglesia Parroquial will take visitors back to remote times. Even after almost 450 years, the town has retained nearly all of its Colonial charm. Near the center of town, almost no modern architecture exists and with the majority of the houses and buildings still sporting white façades, original wooden windows and doors, red tiled roofs, lovely balconies and private courtyards.

 

The most iconic place in Villa de Leyva is its immense 14,000 m² plaza, unique in Latin-America. During the time of the Spanish Conquest, several gallows were erected for executing freedom fighters. But now the plaza, the heart of the town, is a gathering place, the center of social life, a place of festivals and celebrations, and undoubtedly a place that will leave a lasting impression on the minds of every visitor.

 

Besides exploring colonial Villa de Leyva, the surrounding countryside is perfect for outdoor activities, including ecological treks, horseback riding, rock climbing, mountain biking and more. Nearby sites of interest include the 400 year old Saint Ecce Homo Convent, several museums and two spectacular nature reserves - Parque Ecológico La Periquera and Santuario de Fauna y Flora Iguaque.
