Their complex luni-solar calendar, deciphered by Manuel Izquierdo based on work by Duquesne, followed three different sets of years, where the sidereal and synodic months were represented.
Their astronomical knowledge is represented in one of the few extant landmarks of the architecture of the Muisca in El Infiernito outside Villa de Leyva to the north of Bogotá.
Bogotá stands out for its economic strength and associated financial maturity, its attractiveness to global companies and the quality of human capital.
It is the financial and commercial heart of Colombia, with the most business activity of any city in the country.
The Muisca cuisine consisted of a stable and varied diet of tubers, potatoes and fruits.
Maize was the main ingredient of the Muisca, cultivated on elevated and irrigated terraces.
Tropical fruits that didn't grow on the cool highlands, coca, cotton and gold were traded at markets that took place every Muisca week; every four days.Muisca means "people" or "person", making "Muisca people", how they are called, a tautology.At the arrival of the conquerors, the population was estimated to be half a million indigenous people on the Bogotá savanna of up to two million in the Muisca Confederation.At these frequent markets, the Muisca obtained various luxury goods that seem worthless in modern sense and precious metals and gemstones that seem valuable to us became abundant and used for various purposes.The Muisca warrior elite was allowed to wear feathered crowns, from parrots and macacs whose habitat was to the east of the Andes; the Arawkan-speaking Guayupe, Tegua and Achagua.
