In Ráquira, half an hour south of Villa de Leyva you may not also buy handicrafts but also try and make them yourself. This is the proposal in some tours were travellers visit pottery workshops and local Artisans display their skills working with clay. Ráquira is the home of the composer Jorge Velosa, author of such popular songs as 'The teaspoon' and a fervent supporter of carranguera music.
