Good for a short visit if only for the various stone phallus, which were a fertility symbol for the Musica people. The remainder of the site - and its only small, is reasonably interesting, like a mini stonehenge. You can actually view much of it from outside, where there is also an explanation board in Spanish and English, but its only 10,000 COP to enter

Difficult to find (better to get a local driver who knows it’s whereabouts) but absolutely unmissable if you love archeology and prehistoric sites. It reminds the astronomic/sacred sites in other parts of the world and it’s really impressive. There is a probable temple and the entrance and a series ouf phallus-like monolithes scattered all around. There is also a dolmen with a partly underground tomb. The place is clean and well kept with some explanatory billboards. The solitude adds to the fascination.

Most fascinating calendar dug up 50 years ago that was accurate including leap years.

Also a great number of giant phallases in stone .

I visited Villa de Leyva and had the chance to visit this Muisca treasure. Place is small but very mystical. Getting there was not easy. I got lost twice. I had to park right off the street. Staff was friendly though.

Dating back to 4000BC, this small, very important archaeological site reminded me of the stone circles in Britain. Worth a 30 minute visit if you are in the area to see the carved phallic stones, tomb and astronomical 'clock' stones.

A small archaelogical site comprised of burial mounds and standing stones which dominate the site. The stones come in the form of giant phalluses. While not without merit and interest, all but the most upright of archaeologists may find their appetite for these is limited.

Unusual archeological site. A good way to spent half an hour. The on-site guide seems to be a fiction, on vacation when we visited and, according to our taxi driver, ‘always on vacation’.

So, this is basically Colombia's answer to Stonehenge, except that it's all phalluses! What's not to like? I would have given it 5 stars because it's something anyone who is serious about pre-Columbian history should visit. However, the place is really in its infancy in terms of tourist infrastructure. It's very hard to get to, little to no signalization and, all-in-all, not such an educational experience if you haven't done some extensive prior research. I hope they continue to improve it to the level that it deserves.

We were lucky to arrived as a guide was given a tour. Very interesting site.
I highly recommend getting there by car. It is about 20 minutes from the downtown area in Villa de Leyva.

Poorly landscaped (trees in middle detract from perspective), no guide, toilet doesn't have a door, and yet the entrance fee was the same or higher than other places which offer well curated collections and/or and excellent guide. That said, we got a great "dick pic" 😉
