Famed for its mysterious Pre Colombian stone figures carved out of and into the rock, this is one of Colombia’s more unusual and spiritual locations. In addition San Agustin is a great location to enjoy some of Colombia’s finest rural landscapes, with green hills, sub tropical flowers and freshwater streams.
The statues themselves for which the region is so famous date from 3300BC, and are carved in the likeness of men, animals and the god’s of the Pre Colombian peoples. Little is known about the culture and civilizations that made and carved these statues, leaving the visitors with their own ideas and imagination about these ancient statues.
Many of the figures have been moved to an archaeological park outside of the town, but many remain at their original locations set amongst the rolling green hills. The town of San Agustin has developed a vibrant tourism industry around the stone figures, although still keeps its rural charm and personality.
