Barichara is a village in the Santander department of Colombia. It is widely acknowledged as one of the best preserved and most beautiful colonial villages in Colombia. It attracts large number of tourists, and the village has now adapted to this, with large numbers of middle-to-high-end restaurants and hotels.

Get in[edit]

Buses depart regularly from San Gil terminalito located in Carrera 10 with Calle 17 between 6 am amd 8.30 pm (5,000 COP / 40 min). You can get there from the main bus terminal by taxi for 5,000 COP (10/18).

The company Cotrasangil sells also tickets to Barichara from the San Gil main bus terminal for 5.200 COP. As the bus left from the terminalito, they arranged a free taxi transfer for me between the two terminals (04/19).
