Villavicencio, capital of the Meta Department, its a colombian municipality from which most of the economic activity of the country begins. It's a mining city, with a lot of farming and ranching as well as inter-regional commerce.During the pre-colombian times, the area was populared by guayupe natives which focused in fishing, trade and farming until the arrival of the spaniards between 1536 and 1537. The oldest records of the foundation of the city are from 1842, although the information isn't entirely accurate since a fire in 1890 destroyed archives with valuable information. What can be said for sure is that the city is named Villavicencio since 1850. During the XXth century the city grew considerably. Several institutions were founded, and new services arrived to satisfy the needs of its citizens.
Villeta is a Colombian municipality, part of Cundinamarca, whose name means little villa and it's dedicated to the archangel Miguel; it's also called La Ciudad Dulce de Colombia (the sweet city) due to the panela, a dessert they produce.
