Of all the beautiful heritage towns in Colombia, Villa de Leyva is perhaps the very best. It is a shining of example of what can be achieved with only a few simple elements; uneven cobbled streets, well preserved colonial era architecture and pristine whitewashed façades . The spacious main square is the heart of the town, from which narrow alleyways branch of in all directions, hiding churches, monasteries and traditional handicraft shops. Villa de Leyva retains a relaxed and old time feel, especially during the week when less tourists descend upon it, and at 3 hours north of Bogotá is the perfect day trip or overnight stop to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city.
