In the beautiful municipality of Venecia, its mountainous landscape is headed by Cerro Tusa, a unique mountain in the world for its pyramidal shape and its pre-Columbian history narrated through archaeological sites and vestiges.

That today continues to be a tourist attraction for highly demanding trekking.

Cerro Tusa, is a hill located in the southwest of Antioquia, in the municipality of Venice, department of Antioquia (Latitude: 5º 57 '59 ”North, Longitude: 75º 46 '15” West) on the central mountain range, with a height above the sea ​​level of 1,950 meters.

This hill consists of a volcanic formation which emerged from the earth in the Tertiary period, approximately 50 million years ago, forming next to Cerro Bravo what would be the chimneys of a great volcano.

Cerro Tusa constitutes the main pre-Columbian sanctuary of the territory comprised by the current territory of the department of Antioquia. At the base of Cerro Tusa, on the north side, an important and mysterious sanctuary stands out. It is a stone with 9 steps, possibly carved, which ascend to a platform.

This stone was used by the indigenous people as an Offerings, place of worship and ceremonies, and knows the oral tradition of the region's inhabitants as the "Piedra de las Escalas" or the "Altar de Sacrifices",

for the zenufanas indians. Her story begins with Jorge Robledo's second trip to the Americas, which in his journals he lists as a farming and pottery tribe, with beautiful clothing.

looking up facing the rock ceremony, a megalith protruding from the mountain stands out from the forest, where you can see an apparent human face known in oral tradition as "The Face of the Goddess" or "The Face of India".
