BARICHARA

This tiny town, paved with streets made of hand-carved stone slabs, has been untouched by time. Thick rammed-earth walls, many layers of lime whitewash topping bright color fields of blue and green—these are just as they were 250 years ago; not restored, but immaculately preserved. Barichara escaped the “upgrades” and modernization that swept through all colonial towns and remains a lone jewel, a Historical Monument protected by the Colombian government and UNESCO.

No trip through South America would be complete without this peek into Spanish Colonial architecture in breathtaking natural surroundings, perched on the edge of a canyon and home to some of the best views in the country.

ACCOMMODATIONS

The Posada has 7 rooms; 6 doubles and a Suite—all with room service, minibars and fluffy bathrobes for our guests, and a bar and lounge with a rooftop area to look out on the town.

Our high ceilings with exposed beams and lighting carved into the walls were all built using traditional rammed earth building methods.

We use beautiful, sturdy  antique locks on our rooms

RESTAURANT & BAR

Our restaurant serves Colombian and international fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We also offer a full bar and cocktail menu.

We pride ourselves on quality ingredients and preparation—all our vegetables are grown organically on our eco-farm in Curití, and we locally source as much of the menu as possible.
