  a colonial charmer: Barichara
by richiecdisc

The area around San Gil is a great one to explore and one place not to miss is Barichara. In fact, many make the stop in San Gil for that reason alone. This incredibly preserved colonial town is a 300 year old time capsule that is particularly romantic to stroll about and it's no wonder it was declared a national monument in 1978. A scenic 45 minute 3500 COP ($1.75) mini bus trip from San Gil whisks you to this historic charmer.

Please enjoy my Barichara page for more details.
