    – Barichara (Santander, Colombia)

    Barichara is more or less what decades ago was an average town in northeastern Colombia. With modernization came variation in style, architecture, materials, and colors. But a few towns stayed mostly as they had been for a couple of centuries, as a strategy to attract tourism.
    Barichara became a popular destination a few decades ago, allegedly in part because a former president of Colombia bought property to spend holidays away from the rush of big cities, and other wealthy people followed. It was then when the town saw value in architectural preservation. Or maybe it was the newcomers. Who knows...
    Foreigners have recently acquired property to renovate and establish hotels, and the cost of real estate has gone through the roof. On top of all, the whole area has become instagram famous. I admit a share of mea culpa.
