HISTORY AND CULTURE

The colonization begins from the year 1604 with the Jesuit missionaries who organized themselves in herds and haciendas using indigenous labor. At that time they formed the Hacienda Caribabare origin of what today is largely the Sarare region. This region then had a great wave of colonization in the 40's, encouraged by the Sarare Company from Pamplona, ​​in the municipality of Toledo, North of Santander. Where then the well-known INCORA (70's) continued with this work of directed colonization (granting of credits, land titling and technical assistance). This process of colonization led the indigenous people to move to the mountainous areas of the municipality.

Later INCORA promotes the construction of road infrastructure, schools, hospital and production and commercialization credits, which consolidates the colonization. During these times, the large corn production by IDEMA and the logging bonanza stand out.

Folklore in this municipality is almost a compendium of the customs of Colombia and the bordering regions of Venezuela, also of the existence and process of cultural exchange of existing indigenous peoples, so Saravena is considered to be a multiethnic and multicultural people .

There are different craft manifestations given this pluricultural nature, which translates into objects such as backpacks (made by the natives), straw baskets, some wood products (musical instruments) and to a lesser extent leather items.
