La Boyaca

La Boyaca took its name from its resemblance to the bow of a ship (Boyaca was a famous colombian war ship of the time).   Next to it is a segment of “Tiger’s Paw” bastion, the only place in Casco Antiguo where it is possible to get an idea of the original appearance and dimensions of colonial fortifications facing inland.
