If you want to see something truly unique the rock of Guatape and it’s aerial view of the surreal surrounding landscape is a must do!
Leave Medellín and head into Guatapé to visit the enormous rock –possibly a meteorite due to its size– at el Peñón. Visit the picturesque village of Guatapé where all houses are painted in pastel colors. Then, satisfy your sweet tooth in San Antonio de Pereira, a town known for its incredible confectionery.
The tour continues to Rio Negro to visit San Nicolas Cathedral, Convention Center and Religious Art Museum. Visit another rural community in Carmen del Vivoral, famous for its ceramics, particularly vases and dishes. El Retiro, just a bit further is a town renowned for its wooden furniture. Colombia is famous for its flowers and on your return to Medellín you will be passing by Llanogrande, a major flower-growing region where the highway is lined with hydrangea, sunflowers and many others.
