Tour on Horse Back, Colombia

After walking to the center of town you are escorted to the horses to have an afternoon out to see the archeological ruins at the Muisca observatory (Muiscas were an indigenous Indian tribe that the Spanish wiped-out). It was partially destroyed by the Spanish but enough remains intact for your visit. The Spanish also referred to it as "Little Hell' (El Enfiernito), due to it's large penile-like structures that stood for fertility.

The Spanish thought this was obscene and tried to destroy them. You then head to El Fosil - a museum housing a pre-historic kronosaurus marine reptile 3 meters long. You then return to Villa de Leyva by a different route taking in some more of the stunning countryside.
