Everyone knows about San Agustin, but did you know there is another archeological site as much mysterious?
Tierradentro is off the beaten path, and it can be quite an operation commando to get there with public transportation. The easiest way is to get there from Popayan. However, if you decide to travel to Tierradentro from San Agustin, you must be ready to take 4 buses – Pitalito, Garzon, la Plata, Tierradentro. Leave early!
Tierradentro was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995 because of the many underground tombs uncovered there. Some of them are more than 7m deep!
There is still missing a lot of historical explanations about this sacred place. Still, searchers are confident that it has been built and managed by a civilization different from the one present in San Agustin.
You must be fit to explore the different archeological sites. However, the view is quite rewarding.
