While in the beautiful small town of Villa de Leyva you must go see this attraction. It took over 10 years to build from hand molded clay. So very interesting.

I went to Villa de Leyva in order to take some photos of the “biggest piece of clay art” in the world. After the short visit I was left with the sensation that everything is possible. What a relief. Not only is a practical and...More

We walked there from town which took about 20 mins. The entrance fee was pretty cheap. The artist who created this house actually lives in Villa De Leyva, and has his own private cottage next to the house that he uses from time to time!...More

Very close to Villa De Leyva, down a few dirt roads, this was worth the stop because it is unique. It isn't decorated fancy, but you get to freely walk around the two floors, and up on to the roof, and around the small garden....More

We walked from the centre to Casa Terracota, a nice and short/easy walk. Arriving at the entrance, the fee was 40.000 Peso per head. We were 5 in total and paying 50.000 just to see the house from inside was not all worth the money....More

Loved this! Stopped en route to Villa de Levya. Definitely worth it. Unique. Just to see it. Takes half an hour maximum. Entrance fee. There are no explanations. Just see and explore. Lovely views on top.

Unique opportunity to visit an amazing house. Great attention to detail & quite beautiful/quirky. & can walk there from Villa de Leyva albeit not well signposted - check where you are going first online or with Tourist Information.

Really quirky house to walk around, you won’t have seen anything like it! Unfortunately there is no information or guided tour so you have to find your own way around and google the architect later! Recommend it for a visit but perhaps read about it...More
