The town is very interesting with some classical spanish style balconies and a traditional central plaza in front of the Basilica. The Basilica is a beautiful, very sacred place which is visited by many pilgrims as is the well where our Lady appeared. There is also another church siuated on a high spot in the town. There are a few good quality restaurants in the plaza. Well wortth a visit even if you are not a Catholic.

Palacio de la Cultura Romulo Rozo Antigua Estacion Del Tren

Reviewed By Andresgil - Bogota, Colombia

Palacio de la Cultura Rómulo Rozo, reinaugurada hace más de 1 años remodelada, restaurada esta bella estación de Ferrocarril de las más belleza notables de todo nuestro país ,impacta al verla, y se dice que no fue más que el pago de un favor recibido de la virgen al presidente Maros Fidel Suarez. Construida por el arquitecto Belga Martens y el Ingeniero Colombiano Zarate en tiempo record de dos años por los años 1926 al 28,y quedo fuera de servicio al dejar de función el ferrocarril en la década de los 70 quedo abandonada y Bolivia coger auge y brillar su esplendorosa estructura francesa del siglo XVIII para la llegada del Papa en 1986 pero definitivamente hasta el año pasado fue cuando se usó como debía ser una biblioteca pública de Comfaboy, un museo de arte y tradiciones una sala permanente de exhibiciones de artesanías de Boyacá. Y se Bautizó con el nombre del famoso artista escultor que vivió y murió en México donde realizó o y esculpió la mayoría de su obras, destacándose como uno de lo más influyente en su arte colombiano pero poco famoso en nuestro país.

Iglesia de San Agustin

Reviewed By polka party - Bogota, Colombia

The old cloister and church of San Agustin has been successfully converted into a branch of the central bank’s library system. Several frescos of St. Augustine’s life are preserved in the upper levels. The cloister and church has had secular uses for 150 years so there are very few original details left in the old sanctuary. These monasteries can get pretty dark so the renovation architects cut through the ancient walls in several places to allow for more natural light to enter. Some will like it; traditionalists may not. The building is open to the public, but you will need to store your belongings in a locker (for a minimal fee). Photos are only allowed in the cloister.
