The chapel of Santa Barbara is four blocks from the main square towards the top of Barichara. Sculptures of a cross and oxen ploughing the earth stand out in front of this eighteenth-century temple. This is a good place to stop and observe the rows of tile roofs in Barichara that appear to extend towards the mountains.
NEARBY ATTRACTIONS AND ACTIVITIES
Visit churches and an archaeological museum to learn about Barichara’s past, eat “fat-bottomed” ants, and explore Gallineral Park in San Gil (20 minutes south of Barichara).
