Boyacá department road that makes part of Libertadora Route.

In the midst of the landscapes of Colombian geography there are wonderful towns and settings that take us back to colonial times in which brave men like Francisco de Paula Santander, Simón Bolívar and his army obtained the independence of Colombia 200 years ago.

Surrounded by charming colonial architecture houses, small chapels built with stone, mud and clay, historical squares and monuments, this tour is a perfect accompaniment to the typical regional cuisine and optional plans such as camping and adventure sports.

The different Routes correspond to significant historical and cultural moments of the liberating war that took place in Colombian territory two centuries ago. These include the departments of Norte de Santander, Santander, Boyacá, Arauca, Casanare, Cundinamarca, and Tolima, and the city of Bogotá.

Each route corresponds to historical moments of the Independence of Colombia.

Thus, the Comunera Route corresponds to the uprising of villagers against the Spanish due to the imposition of a tax on cotton and aguardiente; the Mutis Route to the Botanical Expedition led by José Celestino Mutis; the Libertadora (Liberating) Route to the battles for independence; and La Gran Convención (The Great Convention) Route to the reform of the constitution of Cúcuta, which ruled in La Gran Colombia.
