Santa Fe de Antioquia Tour
After leaving Medellin you will head west and pass through Tamarinds Park before arriving at West Bridge, a masterwork of engineering. It was one of the first suspension bridges in South America.
After traveling for 1.25hrs (70km) you will arrive at Santa Fe de Antioquia, where time has stood still since the colonial era. Founded in 1541, its narrow streets run alongside whitewashed buildings. Worth visiting are the Santa Barbara church, Museum of Liturgical Art, the Cathedral and Juan del Corral Museum. After lunch return to Medellín, visit the small and wonderfully preserved town of San Jerónimo on the way, with its beautiful church and architecture from both Colonial and Republican eras. Whilst travelling back we will pass vendors selling exotic fruits such as pineapples, guanabana, tamarind and mango.
