Reviewed By TravellerWorker_Peru - Lima, Peru

La Catedral de Duitama es una de las más lindas que conocí en este viaje a Colombia, es muy bonita, pero lo que más destaca son sus vitrales, que son hermosos. Por el diseño arquitectónico me recordó a la de mi ciudad natal, aunque en menores dimensiones.

The sculpture is impressive, also the the landscape is worthy to appreciate, however it is extremely touristic, and all the comercial activities behind deploys its historical value. It demands a protection, the general condition of the monument it is pretty bad.

Sendero Ecologico la Zarza

Reviewed By lugesacol - Bogota, Colombia

Este bello sendero se encuentra en Duitama- Boyaca. Se llega por La Trinidad, allí debes llegar al parque y tomar hacia el norte por cerca de 2 kms. Lleva agua y algo de merienda pues no se consigue al inicio de la caminata. Cuando llegues a la entrada puedes dejar estacionado el auto. NO hay costo por el ingreso al sendero. Se camina por cerca de 3 o 4 horas, depende un poco del ritmo que le imprimas a tu marcha. El camino es un poco exigente pues pasas de los 2600 mts sobre el nivel del mar a los 3100. Pero vale la pena! Es hermoso!

Although in my opinion is always necessary to visit a town plaza in this case you would not miss much. The "cathedral" is more like a church and the plaza is not very special.

Complejo Termal Paipa

Reviewed By WilsonM - Bogota, Colombia

The complex could be a great touristic spot but the crowd that goes there makes the place not very pleasant. We heard that it is not very unusual to strange things in the water and while we were there one of the pools had to be closed to be cleaned of a child's poop.
