The town is a serene place but it is also full of life and movement with its commerce and its unique arts & crafts industry. Be sure to take a leisurely stroll down its Calle Real, or Main Street where you will be able to visit fun local shops, art galleries and historic homes. The local artesanos use many different techniques with watercolor, acrylic and resin; there are also many examples of the local fashion tejidos, jewelry made from local gold and silversmiths, fine clothing, pirograbados, woodwork, beautiful crafts made of Guadua (a local tree from the bamboo family), incredible loom works, and quilts.
