The Market Square

One of the most striking buildings in Honda is the Market Square, built between 1917 and 1935 with its original goal to house the Franciscan Sisters. The former convent, which highlights white and green colors, has colored archways and 148 columns were compared by tourists with those seen in the Parthenon in Athens, which is why it was names the 'Parthenon of Tolima'. 

 

NEARBY ATTRACTIONS AND ACTIVITIES

Walk down the Calle de las Trampas and cross the Navarro Bridge in Honda; and follow the tracks of the Botanical Expedition of José Celestino Mutis in the neighboring areas of Mariquita and Ambalema are some plans to keep in mind.
