Villa de Leiva Things to Do: 28 reviews and 82 photos
The main square in Villa de Leyva did not change name after independence to Plaza Bolívar like in most mayor cities, but still keeps the traditional name Plaza Mayor. It is the largest square in Colombia and measure 120 metres on each side. It is a cobbled open square with only a small fountain in the middle. That fountain provided the inhabitants of Villa de Leyva with water for centuries.
The square is surrounded by lovely white painted colonial buildings, the church, cafes/restaurants and handicraft shops. In the evening children and adults come here to fly their kite. It is great just to sit and watch what is going on.
