Tatacoa/San Agustín/Tierradentro

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]In 1538, Gonzalo Jimenez de Quesada reached the Tatacoa Desert and called it “Valley of Tears.” He was impressed by the immense, motionless scenery and haunting colors as he passed through in his search for El Dorado. He did not find El Dorado but his arrival opened this region to the Spaniards and the world. Two sophisticated long-gone cultures would be discovered in San Agustín and Tierradentro. UNESCO named both archaeological parks World Heritage Sites in 1995. Travelling through the highlands and mountains of Huila and Cauca, travelers reach San Andrés de Pisimbalá and the National Archaeological Park of Tierradentro, In 1995, UNESCO described Tierradentro's large, elaborate shaft and chamber tombs, a “unique testimony to the high level of artistic and social culture of the region over its long prehispanic history.” This unforgettable experience ends in Popayán, “the white city” and recognized by UNESCO for its gastronomy.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="10px"][vc_text_separator title="HIGHLIGHTS" title_align="separator_align_left" color="green" style="dotted"][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/4"][vc_single_image image="345" alignment="right"][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="3/4"][vc_column_text] <h3>Unique pre-Columbian monuments and art, in natural Andean settings.</h3> [/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/4"][vc_single_image image="344" alignment="right"][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="3/4"][vc_column_text] <h3>Native English/German/French/Spanish translator who has lived in tha area for many regions.</h3> [/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/4"][vc_single_image image="346" alignment="right"][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="3/4"][vc_column_text] <h3>Local guides, who know and love their region deeply.</h3> [/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/4"][vc_single_image image="343" alignment="right"][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="3/4"][vc_column_text] <h3>Interaction with native cultures who have kept their knowledge and customs alive and fresh in the 20th century.</h3> [/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/4"][vc_single_image image="344" alignment="right"][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="3/4"][vc_column_text] <h3>Arid deserts and incredible high Andean landscapes.</h3> [/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/4"][vc_single_image image="345" alignment="right"][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="3/4"][vc_column_text] <h3>Popayán's exquisite food, the only South American city recognized as a City of Gastronomy by UNESCO (vegetarian, vegan options available).</h3> [/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_empty_space height="10px"][vc_btn title="Get sample itinerary" align="center" link="url:%23form|||"][vc_empty_space height="10px"][vc_text_separator title="PHOTOS" title_align="separator_align_left" color="green" style="dotted"][vc_gallery type="nivo" interval="5" images="445,446,447,448,449,450,451" img_size="full"][vc_empty_space height="10px"][vc_text_separator title="MAP" title_align="separator_align_left" color="green" style="dotted"][vc_column_text][google_maps id="794"] [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row el_id="form"][vc_column][vc_empty_space height="90px"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=".vc_custom_1484521997508{padding-right: 50px !important;padding-left: 50px !important;background-color: #fcfcfc !important;}"][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text="Request Information about this Activity" font_container="tag:h2|font_size:20|text_align:center" google_fonts="font_family:Lato%3A100%2C100italic%2C300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C700%2C700italic%2C900%2C900italic|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal"][ninja_form id="12"][/vc_column][/vc_row]
