San Agustin, Popayan and Cali: Visit Tierradentro

Visit Us

Visit Tierradentro

Travel to this truly off-the-beaten track attraction hidden away among the almost vertical saw-toothed hills and pinched valleys of the southern Colombian Andes. For centuries this region of exquisite highland landscapes, the territory of the Nasa indigenous tribes, was little visited owing to the rugged terrain. Access is much easier now, and the principal magnet for visitors is the series of intricately decorated pre-Columbian tombs which pit the steep mountainsides. The design, structure and striking artwork of these spell-binding burial chambers reveal the social complexity and cultural wealth of a pre-Hispanic society which flourished over 1,400 years ago, and as such have been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The unspoilt village of Tierradentro and nearby small town of San Andres de Pisimbalá, still rarely visited by tourists, offer you the bonus of a prime example of “authentic” Colombia.
