From the honey-coloured stone buildings of Barichara, you’ll follow an 18th century cobblestone road down to the small village of Guane. The way is called Camino Suamuxi, from the indigenous Chibcha language, and the hike takes around three hours.
As you walk through the surrounding forest, keep your eye on the canopies for parakeets, tanagers, sparrows, red-capped cardinals and finches. This beautiful rural area is a bird’s paradise.
The lovely quaint town of Guane is a crumbling old village. As you arrive into its cobbled streets, you’ll feel as though you’ve walked the old road back into colonial times.
