Tierradentro

National Archaeological Park

Tierradentro

Guidebook - English

The National Archeological Park of Tierradentro is world-renowned because it has the largest concentration of monumental subterranean tombs from Prehispanic times. The Park works in protecting, preserving, researching, and exhibiting one of the most important cultural properties of the Colombian Nation, and one of the most impressive remains of disappeared indigenous societies.

The archeological region of Tierradentro is part of the cultural area of Alto Magdalena and shares with Valle de la Plata, directly to the South, and with San Agustín zone, even further South, many of the general developmental characteristics of their societies during Prehispanic times. Nevertheless, the hypogea –large and elaborate subterranean funerary chambers without known counterpart – give Tierradentro an exceptional cultural value that has deserved its inscription in the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1995. Tierradentro is also the name of the geographical region where the Municipalities of Inzá and Páez are located, and where archeological remains and the hypogea can be found. This is a mountainous and volcanic zone on the east side of the Central Mountain Range of the Northern Andes. Here, the basin of the Páez River is formed and it flows into La Plata River, forming the main tributary of the upper Magdalena River basin.
