What is the population of Tunja?
Some 120,000 give or take a head or two. It's the capital of Boyaca, Central Colombia, on the Pan-American Highway, It is a commercial center and distribution point for the products of the region (coal, gold, emeralds, mineral water, and agricultural products) and for the cattle of the eastern llanos. Tunja was founded in 1539. It declared its independence from Spain in 1811 and shortly thereafter served as SimÃ³n BolÃvar 's staging point for the victory at BoyacÃ¡ . Going to go there???
