Dating back to 4000BC, this small, very important archaeological site reminded me of the stone circles in Britain. Worth a 30 minute visit if you are in the area to see the carved phallic stones, tomb and astronomical 'clock' stones.

A small archaelogical site comprised of burial mounds and standing stones which dominate the site. The stones come in the form of giant phalluses. While not without merit and interest, all but the most upright of archaeologists may find their appetite for these is limited.

Unusual archeological site. A good way to spent half an hour. The on-site guide seems to be a fiction, on vacation when we visited and, according to our taxi driver, ‘always on vacation’.

So, this is basically Colombia's answer to Stonehenge, except that it's all phalluses! What's not to like? I would have given it 5 stars because it's something anyone who is serious about pre-Columbian history should visit. However, the place is really in its infancy in...More

We were lucky to arrived as a guide was given a tour. Very interesting site. I highly recommend getting there by car. It is about 20 minutes from the downtown area in Villa de Leyva.

Poorly landscaped (trees in middle detract from perspective), no guide, toilet doesn't have a door, and yet the entrance fee was the same or higher than other places which offer well curated collections and/or and excellent guide. That said, we got a great "dick pic"...More

Fascinating site and a guide is essential who can explain the relevance of the stone and linear format.

This is an ancient, indigenous people's homage to the male fertility symbol. Yes. It is a garden of large, stone, anatomically-accurate (except in their extremely large size) male phalluses. They say it's, perhaps, a solar observatory of some sort, but it is a fun diversion...More

it's small, it's interesting..one of the few signs of the Muisca people.. but it's badly indicated, badly attended, badly managed..and not cheap to enter, considering that tours is less that 15 mins
