Parque para las Artes - City Park Barichara - Colombia

Uphill from the Capilla de Santa Bárbara is Parque para las Artes, a small park dedicated to the main art form Barichara is known for: stone sculpture. Founded after the second Festival Internacional de la Talla en Piedra, it features 27 statues carved by artists of 11 countries. Some are based on European or indigenous American mythology, others are abstract. Small brooks pass through the landscape, around these modern sentinels guarding a staggering view over the Río Suárez canyon.
