Abstract (in English)

The eastern Nueva Granada Royal Road, connetcted the cities of Tunja, Vélez and Pamplona in the way of Capitanía of Venezuela, and was constructed on the long footpath of pre-hispanic origin that related the main four Eastern Andean Muiscas Cacicazgos with Piedemonte towns with which, the muiscas maintained an intense cultural interchange. The Colonial Route continued fulfilling its function for the traffic of people, products and ideas, and also integrated market places, indigenous towns, cities as well as old ceremonial centers and the new catholic cult celebration sites, that exists until today. At the 19th century, the Road was the way of the Liberty army, during Independence Period and Republic consolidation time. Therefore, the dirt Road constitutes an historical axis that goes through one of the most significant cultural area, the Cundiboyacense Plateau, where there is an important material and immaterial heritage registry that shows the complexity of the Andean tradition.
