Santander is one of Colombia's 32 departments. It is a land of contemplation and adventure, of steep mountains that rest in the Chicamocha Canyon, the second largest in the world. The geography of the region allows the practice of different adventure sports such as rafting, canoeing or paragliding. Activities that elevate the palpitations of the heart and raise the levels of adrenaline to the most daring.
In addition to its natural attraction, Santander is home to colonial towns of incomparable beauty and conservation, such as Barichara and Zapatoca. Its Andalusian style houses lined in clay-colored stones, make Barichara a perfect scenery for photography. Equally beautiful and only two hours from Bucaramanga is Zapatoca. Also known as Levitical City or Silk Climate City, Zapatoca keeps the history of the indigenous communities that inhabited the region in its preserved colonial buildings.
