Tierra Santa, Butterfly Sanctuary and biological station, is a project that was born from the hope and will of conserving the biodiversity of Sucre's flora and fauna, one of Colombia's areas that are threatened by the agricultural and industrial exploitation.

Tierra Santa's promote hands- on education of new generations and bring the community together around the protection of the earth, the ecosystems, their balance and the ancestry medicine.

Come and join us, live the colors of the butterflies and help us to preserve their home, meet the magic realism and healing power of this land.
