The 17th of december 2014 Villa de Leyva, founded in 1572, celebrated 60 years of anniversary as a national monument. Every corner, landscape, colonial house and street that you will find in this beautiful Village holds a story. It has been conserved by generations of families, like us, that day by day work tirelessly to take care of our colonial houses and encourage visitors to fall in love of Colombia's architectonic patrimony and natural resources.
At the Hotel Molino la Mesopotamia we have a centenarian wheat flour mill and a mystic and majestic water spring in a fourth hundred years old colonial house, embellished with fossils, art, beautiful gardens and landscapes. But above all we have the joy of being part of the happy memories of the customers and families who have chosen to stay with us over fifty years. Thank you for accompanying us in our journey.
