The trip between the Lost City of Falan and the Cristalina Canyon in the Serranía de las Quinchas is an experience that merges history and nature. In Falan, we explore the 17th-century ruins of the Royal Mines of Santa Ana, where figures such as José Celestino Mutis and Simón Bolívar left their mark. We immerse ourselves in history as we tour tunnels and walls, and enjoy the lush landscape of the Quebrada Morales.

Next, we headed to the Serranía de las Quinchas, previously inaccessible due to the conflict, but now open to the public. Here, we marvel at the Cristalina Canyon, with rock formations more than 200 meters high. We explore this spectacular landscape, finding natural pools and waterfalls between the rocks.
