Traditionally the majority of Colombia’s people lived in rural areas or small villages. However, since the 1950’s, there has been a steady migration to the cities, especially Bogota. Today approximately 75% of Colombia’s population resides in its main cities. Bogota alone has more that 6 million people.

The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta is home to a number of Indian communities as well as one of South America's most important archaeological sites, Ciudad Perdida. Ciudad Perdida has been given the ‘nickname’ The Lost City due to the fact that it was only just rediscovered in 1975.

Colombia’s culture is heavily influenced by the different immigrant groups that have migrated there over time. Its folklore, arts, music and crafts are a combination of the Indigenous, Spanish and African people that called Columbia home for many generations.
