Introducing Ipiales

Only 7km from the border with Ecuador, 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 from surrounding villages come to buy and sell goods. A short side trip to the Santuario de las Lajas is the real draw, though the Pan- american from Pasto is also thrilling itself.
