Santa Ana de Falán

In the piedmont of the central cordillera of Colombia the indigenous cultures Tolima and Quimbaya used gold for the preparation of gold pieces. In 1630, in a place located on the bank of the Morales gully, a settlement was erected called Santa Ana, where a complex infrastructure of tunnels, tunnels, canals, and walls were built, which communicated with the mint in Mariquita, a strategic place During the colony. After the expulsion of the Spaniards in the zone, the English continued the mining work. At the end of the 19th century the mines were abandoned.
