A Walking Tour of Colonial Barichara - City Walk Barichara - Colombia

The real treasure of Barichara is its pristine colonial architecture. Many come to this pueblo just to wander its flagstone lanes, snapping photos of the white-washed, red-tile-roofed buildings. Start your exploration at the Templo de la Inmaculada Concepción y San Lorenzo on the main square. It is built of local stone carved by the village’s artisans. Walking West on Carrera 7 to the corner of Calle 3, you come to the Capilla de San Juan de Dios with a noteworthy cemetery. South three blocks on Calle 3 to Carrera 4, then left two blocks to Calle 5 brings you to Capilla de San Antonio with a small shaded plazuela. Another 2 blocks South, on Carrera 2, between Calles 5 and 6, is Casa Aquileo Parra. This once-home of a former Colombian President (1876-78) is presently a museum. Returning Northward along Calle 6, you will pass the plaza once more and arrive to Capilla Santa Bárbara, now used for cultural events.
