Visit the Guane Archaeological and Paleontological Museum

The village of Guane is a 15-minute drive or two-hour walk away from Barichara. You could also make the trip on horseback along the highway. On the eastern side of the square you’ll find the Archaeological and Paleontological Museum. This site, created by Father Isaias Diaz Ardila in 1970, exhibits fossils that are millions of years old, along with ceramics, necklaces, and other objects made by the Guane Indians.
