Tierradentro

Tierradentro, Cauca

In the mist of tall mountains and profound canyons that lay across a plethora of rivers and currents, one of the most extraordinary Precolombian cultures flourished in the foothills of the Central Cordillera. In the eastern region of Cauca this culture left a timeless footprint on the earth. An impressive compilation of funeral monuments – los hipogeos. Along with a notable collection of sculpture which are proof the majestic traditions and beliefs the ancestors of this region practiced. Alive or dead they will stay tied to the tombs providing an incredible cultural spectacle for Colombians and foreigners to experience. They say that from the depths of the tombs the men of TIERRADENTRO talk to us, the people of the 21st century, to relearn the ways of the land.
