Barichara is famed for being one of the prettiest colonial villages in all of Colombia, and it isn’t hard to see why. It’s a sleepy but well preserved little place with excellent panoramas of the surrounding countryside. There’s not much going on, but it’s worth visiting for the peaceful picturesqueness is nothing else. – Daniel
