Tunja

Whether you come for a short break or stay for a week, Tunja is the sort of place that will linger in your memory for a long time.

This area of Boyaca is home to some 120,000 inhabitants.

It is situated approximately 6 miles east of Cucaita and 75 miles northeast of the national capital of Bogota.

If you're here with children, you'll no doubt want to plan a visit to one or two of the excellent family-friendly attractions. Good times and precious moments await at Gondava Park, the Zoocriadero Ostrich Farm and Moniquira Olympic Pool.

Want to gain a different perspective on the city? Enjoy a wholesome afternoon outdoors at Pozos Azules. Simon Bolivar Park is another great place to have a picnic, work on your photography skills and enjoy the fresh air.

Set aside a day or two to explore some of the favored exhibition spaces nearby. The Archaeological Museum and the Paleontological Research Center offer a range of collections that are bound to keep you captivated. Also worth considering are the 1900 Theme Park and the Villa de Leyva Fossil Museum.

The array of objects and specimens at the El Fósil offer a fascinating glimpse into the world of science.

Have a look at what's on at the Casa Museo Luis Alberto Acuna or the Casa Museo de Luis Alberto Acuña and see if there's anything that piques your interest. If you're lucky, you might be able to catch an opening!

To learn more about the people and places of this region's past, make sure you visit at least one of its many remaining historical sites. Begin your local history tour at House of Nitrate or Iglesia de la Virgen de Morca. More stories from the days of old await at Archaeological Site El Infiernito and Antonio Narino House Museum.

The rich history of civil engineering can be seen in Boyaca Bridge and Puente de Boyaca, two impressive old structures that cross the area's waterways.

Discover the region's spiritual side and enjoy some moments of quiet contemplation at Tunja Cathedral and Duitama Cathedral. Carmen Museum and San Martin Church are also interesting holy places.

Though city squares can at times seem quite similar, each one possesses its own intriguing stories, characters and buildings that make it unique. On your adventures, make sure you take the path through Tunja Plaza de Bolivar or Villa de Leyva Plaza Major. Plaza De Los Libertadores and Parque La Villa are also held dearly in the heart and soul of the locals.

Take the time to consider momentous moments in Tunja's history at its various memorial sites, such as the Lancers Monument or Casa Terracota. San Martin de Tours Cathedral and the Pantano de Vargas Monumento a los 14 lanceros are also well worth stopping by.

All educational institutions have their own special character, and the University of Boyaca is certainly no exception. An important part of the local community, it makes an interesting excursion for anyone who enjoys the stimulating college environment.

To browse through stores and enjoy a light meal, spend a few hours at Innovo Plaza Duitama and Unicentro Mall.

Culture vultures will find plenty to applaud at Plaza de Toros La Pradera, one of the most acclaimed performance stages in the area. After the show, have supper in one of the close-by restaurants or bars and enjoy the regional cuisine.

Those on the lookout for something a little bit different should also check out Tibasosa.
