Experience Highlights

  • Duration: Half day

Half day visit to Medellín city, Colombia’s second most important city and a standout commercial and cultural destination. You shouldn't miss this unique city when visiting Colombia.

Visit the Parque San Antonio, also known as La Plazoleta that houses around twenty-three Botero sculptures donated by the artist in 2000. Moving on to the Plazuela de San Ignacio, one of the oldest parts of the city where the statue of General Francisco de Paula Santander and the bust of Marcelino Velez are located. It is surrounded by the San Ignacio building which houses the Universidad de Antioquia’s history department.

On the other side, the baroque San Ignacio church with its neoclassical exterior fools all with its gothic interior. Then, continue to the Parque de los Pies Descalzos which was inspired by oriental philosophy and contains a small bamboo forest, a sandy area, streams all designed to ease people into a state of relaxation. The Parque de los Deseos, the Edificio Inteligente, the Metropolitan Theatre, the Parque Cisneros, the Parque de las Luces and the Alpujarra where the government buildings are housed all continue.

Upon returning to the centre of the city proceed to the Nutibara hill and enjoy views of the city from an alternate angle as well as a reproduction of a typical “paisa” village.
