Augustinian Culture Park

Let’s keep talking about tourist commitment contained in the Agenda. The issue is crucial because we intend to become a tourist destination with all the implications that this entails. In the national order Colombia is in transit define seven tourist products in which your offer will focus: Sun and beach, history and culture, agrotourism, ecotourism, sports and adventure, fairs and festivals and capital cities. But in Huila, we have defined our commitment within the concepts of ecological and cultural tourism, which I would suggest expanding with religious tourism, ecotourism and agritourism. At present, with the infrastructure already built, Huila is capable of receiving approximately 250 thousand tourists a year and the idea is that in the medium term we are in capacity to host some 2 million tourists.

This requires not only investment in many developments of infrastructure but also in a strong promotion plan of our Department both nationally and internationally. Developments of the Agenda have been referred to the famous four clusters tourist to know: that of the Tatacoa desert and its area of influence, the reservoir of Bethany and its area of influence, Neiva City Region and the t. whose central axis is our world heritage Archaeological Park. T. Cluster is composed of the municipalities of San Agustin, Isnos, Pitalito, La Argentina, Timana, Garzon, Saladoblanco and La Plata with tourist joints in Paicol and Nataga, in which the fabulous proposal of the network of museums of the upper Magdalena region must be developed. This network includes the Archaeological Park of Obando, the Museum of the worldview of the Augustinian culture and the meaning of the Colombian Massif, as well as the Color in the Augustinian Culture Park; the Museum of the process pre-Hispanic General South; the Archaeological Park of the Yalcon village in Morelia, the Museum of the Gaitana, Timana, the ceramic Museum in Pitalito, the Archaeological Museum of La Plata, the Museum archaeological of the high of laundries, and the Archaeological Museum of Garzon.
