Rivers have always been the touchstone of civilization, so it is no wonder that Bugalagrande, located at the confluence of three major rivers (Cauca, La Paila and Bugalagrande) transformed into the center of commerce that it is today. The town is known for its pottery, the Overo doctrine chapel dating back to the 17th century, and the Homecoming Festival held in August, where cooking workshops are offered to the public.
