Capitán Antonio Ricaurte Museum House

“Ricaurte n San Mateo, in atoms flying." A verse of the national anthem alludes to Antonio Ricaurte, the Patriot who blew himself up in a magazine to avoid falling into Spanish fans when Nueva Granada was fighting for its independence. You may visit the birthplace of this hero in  Villa de Leyva, now converted to a historical Museum by the Colombian air force.


Houses that are museums, an ostrich farm and a festival in which the tomato is the protagonist are some plans to enjoy in Villa de Leyva and its surroundings.
