Villa de Leyva
The Essential
One of the country's loveliest colonial towns and a favourite weekend destination for the inhabitants of Bogotá, Villa de Leyva is just four hours away from the capital. The town is committed to preserving its rich architectural heritage, its old streets and buildings dating from centuries past and its beautiful cobbled main square. Majestic mountains rise up protectively on the doorstep of this town, whose atmosphere is redolent of far-off Andalusia.
