The town’s former grain mill was built in 1568, 4 years before Villa de Leyva itself was founded, and for the last 50 or so years, it’s been a hotel. The hotel is an easy 4-block walk from the main square, and it’s one of the most unique stays in the area. The antique furnishings that adorn the guestrooms make it feel as if you are sleeping in history, a feeling that is enhanced by the dampness that sometimes seeps in at night.
