A very small museum with a good model of what the ceremony of the Lago de Guatavita must have looked liked. It cost 4000 pesos to get in and the guide will ask for a tip at the end.

Really like the town. We love the stones on the foor, walls, the friendly town dog, the statues and everything. It is very different from numerous south america plazas that i have been to.

Guatavita is a municipality and town of Colombia in the Guavio Province
of the department of Cundinamarca. Guatavita is located 75 km northeast
of the capital Bogotá. It borders Sesquilé and Machetá in the north,
Gachetá and Junín in the east, Guasca and Sopó in the south and in the
west are Tocancipá and Gachancipá.

Before the Spanish conquest of the Muisca on the Altiplano Cundiboyacense,
the central plateau in the Colombian Andes, the area was inhabited by the
Muisca organized in their Muisca Confederation. Guatavita was ruled by a
cacique who was a powerful figure consulted by the zipas of Bacatá and the
zaques of Hunza. Guatavita was specialized in gold working.[1] An important
temple honouring Sué, the Sun god in the religion of the Muisca was constructed
in Guatavita.

Modern Guatavita was founded on March 18th, 1593 by Miguel de Ibarra.

Guatavita was rebuilt on higher ground in the mid 1960s due to the construction
of the Tominé Reservoir, which intentionally flooded the area of the town.
