Introducing Ipiales

Only 7km from the Ecuador border, Ipiales is an uninspiring commercial town driven by trade across the frontier. There is little to see or do here, except for the colorful Saturday market, where the campesinos (peasants) from surrounding villages come to buy and sell goods. A short side trip to the Santuario de Las Lajas is the real drawcard, though the Panamericana from Pasto is also thrilling.
