About the Tour

Welcome to Bucaramanga Viajero !!

We will take a tour of some of the most emblematic parks of the beautiful city, we will mix in its streets, places of interest and its historic center.

We will start our way to the east of the city, in the recently opened Enchanted Forest , a park designed to enjoy the beautiful view of Bumanguesa.
Continuing east along Cra 39 we pass the Parque de los Leones and the Parque de los Sarrapios . There, we will explain the dark Myth of the Devil's house and its connection with one of the most powerful families in the Region.
We go down and visit San Pio Park and the monument of the naked standing woman (Botero). Then we head towards the city center, crossing another lung of the city, the Public Improvements Park. We take Calle 36 and go to Parque Santander where, I will explain the importance of this park for the culture and society of the city as well as places such as the Commerce Club, the Metropolitan Cathedral of the Sagrada Familia and the old Bucarica hotel.
We will continue our Bucara experience walking west and a few blocks we will arrive at the historic center: We will visit the civic square (Palace of Justice) and García Rovira park . We will conclude this tour through the history of Bucaramanga with the story of the last execution in front of the Yellow Palace (seat of the government of Santander).

Knowing a city is beautiful, but it is even more spectacular when a local accompanies you and reveals the stories and anecdotes that its walls and streets cannot tell.
