Barichara is a colonial town in the central-north of Colombia and is famous among Colombians for being one of their favourite places to spend a long weekend or longer. This town is known as ´the most beautiful town in Colombia´ and it is not difficult to understand why.
Time seems to have stood still here and people live in a tranquil way. You can recognize Barichara easily thanks to its typical white and green painted houses that have beautifully decorated wooden window frames.
The town itself is located on a relatively steep hill and once you are at the highest point it offers amazing views over Barichara and its cobblestone streets, and the nearby canyon. One of Barichara greatest advantages is that the climate is year-round pleasant.
Tough, not only the town itself is worth the visit but also the surroundings will appeal to many travellers. Barichara is surrounded by impressive mountains, canyons, and rivers so it could also be a great destination for adventure lovers with activities like rafting, caving, and paragliding.
Let’s face it, Barichara offers a great mix of architecture, nature, and adventure.
