Indigenous market in Silvia

Colombia Highlight Indigenous market in Silvia

Once a week the Guambiano indians, young and old, go to Silvia's market. They are considered one of the most conservative indigenous people and wear beautiful blue-purple scarfs and ponchos with bowler hats to top it off. At the market they buy and sell fruits, vegetables, meat and traditional medicine. Around the plaza, you'll find typical "chiva" buses lined up to transport everyone back to the mountains.
