Villa de Leyva

2017

An observatory landscape and hotel for professional and amateur astronomers in Villa de Leyva. A small colonial town in the high Andes with a fascinating history of amateur observation and best skies all year around for astronomic observations. This is also the place for kite festivals in Colombia and even a pilgrimage town for ovni hunters and fossil gatherers.
