Photo dump: Wandering the colonial streets of Barichara

The quaint colours and steep streets of Barichara are backed by a patchwork of farming fields and tranquil hills. After six months in Colombia I have not only fallen in love with the colonial architecture, but it’s probably become an obsession. Next on my own personal architectural excursion, after Mompox, the streets of the tiny Santander town didn’t disappoint.

Only a short bus ride in to the hills from San Gil and you feel that time has not only slowed down but almost stands still. Visiting on a lazy Sunday there is a strong sense of community, heritage and tradition. It’s the kind of place that needs to be shared with friends under a big shady tree in the main Plaza over a huge lunch and too much chilled wine. Although wandering solo, voyeur like has it’s own appeal. Barichara is just the kind of place I could open up a Hostel and live the quiet life.
