Santa Fe de Antioquia
Travel back in time with this tour that will take you to Santa Fe de Antioquia, an amazingly conserved colonial town founded in 1541, located 36 miles from Medellín.
We’ll walk along the cobblestone streets and admire the white houses with colorful doors and windows. We’ll see the town market, the churches, and the cathedral that opened in 1797. We’ll visit the local shops and experience the authentic “paisa” culture.
We’ll take some time to relax in the Plaza Mayor, the main and historical square. We might have the chance to see some artistic performances, admire the surrounding buildings with their picturesque balconies, and have a cup of fresh Colombian coffee, made with grains from the “fincas” nearby. Why not some “agua ardiente” too?
We’ll cross the Puente de Occidente, one of the longest suspension bridges in the world! Its construction started in 1887 (same as the Eiffel Tower) under the direction of José María Villa, involved also in the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge. While we walk across it with the Cauca River flowing below our feet, you’ll be able to enjoy views of stunning landscapes and vistas as far as the eye can see.
Let me show you around this traditional Colombian town.
