It is evident that the knowledge about the city of Ambalema and its cultural patrimony refers us to a problem, that surely we try to unveil the Universities studying this place located in the border of the Magdalena River, away from the national highway. Surely, we see Ambalema as an imaginary, for what remains in their houses, as a remnant of a representation of the Greek Stoas. Exceptionally natural, cut, assembled and painted by man, to sustain the only possibility of shade in its burning streets.
This being a minimum example, it contributes to explain why each reflection on Ambalema's heritage and the imaginaries they contain, is poetic and therefore contributes to construct an idea of ours: that of the academics obsessed with the heritage of these lost peoples of Tolima.
However, the imaginary of the inhabitants of Ambalema must be the purest idea of what the heritage of the place is. And despite our concerns about preserving it, it seems that the heritage will not disappear as long as it lives in their minds. To understand what survives in memory requires a complex process, both collectively constructed and therefore dynamic.
