At the end of the 1960s, the initial village was flooded to build the Tominé reservoir. The government of that time built a new town for its inhabitants, New Guatavita, in a higher area. The town is charming for its architecture. In the square, you can buy handicrafts mainly colorful ponchos made of wool. This is a good place to enjoy a cup of coffee.
