Anzoategui, one of the generals of Bolivar who campaigned to create the Gran Colombia and gain independence from Spain, fought several battles near Pamplona. He died in this house when he was only 30 years old. Now it's a museum with extensive cultural activity.
The Metropolitan Cathedral of Pamplona is located in the ancient Church of the Convent of Santa Clara, built in 1584 by Doña Magdalena Velasco, daughter of town founder Don Velasquez Ortún Velasco. It seems like a Romaneaque Church, it is actually nothing colonial.
Pamplona's main market is situated in an old colonial building. In it you can find everything, fruits, meat, clothing, crafts, and small restaurants. It is a very economical way to try Colombian products.
The convent of Santa Clara is a beautiful colonial building. The adjacent church is a place of great reverence by the locals because of the image of the baby Jesus that it has. Many visitors go here and at Easter, many of the processions begin here.
I visited the moor Santurbán several times and is the richest in water I've seen in my life. The amount of water you see in this place is amazing. More than 20 lakes and a lot of smaller lakes. Wetlands are innumerable. The huge rocks and cliffs are huge and produce chills.
Thanks to the philanthropic work of the great sculptor Eduardo Ramirez Villamizar Colombian, the Museum of Modern Art Ramirez Villamizar was founded. Today it has become one of the most important cultural centers in northeast Colombia. It is certainly worth a visit!
