A very unique and different place to go. Every single corner of the house is different and amusing. Only imagining that someone build it and was living in there is like a surreal! You can go horse riding to enhance the experience!

This place is a must see if you are curious for architectures and landmarks. The guide is very knowledgeable and friendly doesn't mind repeating himself if you didn't get or understand something. It's worth the price. Walking distance for people that like to explore.

If you want to visit in Colombia a hobbiton like place, this is it. Wonderful house made out of clay. I wanted to stay and live in it. 5 to 3 dollars entrance.

Take the chance to have a guide. They are free. Great house. Different from all other houses. Unique.

We walked here from Villa de Leyva and it was worth the walk and the 10,000 entry fee (earlier reviewer said this wasn't worth it for the time spent there, but it didn't feel as if anyone was limiting our time on the grounds). House...More

Beautiful quirky terracotta house but very expensive for the 15 minutes you are going to spend there...
