Overview

Located just 50 miles north of Medellin, in a short space of time you’ll be transported back to the colonial era. Founded in 1541, the town was declared a National Monument due to its extraordinary colonial architecture and is one of the most admired towns in Colombia by tourists, and you’ll be equally impressed.

Arrive to the town through the Western tunnel, one of the largest and most modern in Latin America, and enjoy a tour through the centre. Admire the Neoclassical and Baroque architecture of the Metropolitan Cathedral, built with an astonishing 1,120,000 bricks; which was declared a National Monument in 1959. Throughout the tour you’ll discover how the whole town has remained suspended in history and why it was declared a National Monument as you also tour through its Plaza Mayor and passed the Archiepiscopal Palace amongst other landmarks. The area’s economy is sustained on agriculture, namely the production of coffee, maize and beans and is situated within the Central Cordillera of the Andes. After the tour, we head back to Medellin, where on our way you have time to appreciate the engineering marvel that is the Bridge of the West, a dramatic suspension bridge crossing the Cauca River.
