Description

This is a full day tour that takes you back in history to the first colonized town in Antioquia called Santa Fé de Antioquia. It is one of the most significant villages in our geography due to the arrival of Spanish troops more than 400 years ago.

Your professional bilingual guide will meet with you at your hotel and then embark on a personalized tour by an air conditioned car heading northwest to one of the most fascinating scenarios just outside the city. San Sebastian cable car is the first stop, where amazing views of the countryside can be shared.

Next, tour stops a few minutes later at San Jeronimo village where you may walk around to take photos and get an intro to the history of the early foundations of Medellin. There are cafeterias and restaurants and we suggest bringing cash since not all shops take cards.

Your professional guide will make the most interesting stop next at Santa Fé de Antioquia, distinguished by its classy architecture and cultural heritage. Once there, a walk around the town after lunch (meals at your own expense), will be the best way to check out the elegant churches and the history of Medellin. The best place to experience the colonial times is the Juan Del Corral Museum which gathers objects, documents and historical facts on the colonization of Antioquia.

During the afternoon, the tour visits the Occidente Bridge, part of the national heritage which is not longer used by cars since it is more than 200 years old, but it has free access and you are free to walk around and take pictures of the spectacular views before going back to Medellín at the end of the day.

It has already been a pleasure introducing you to the most fascinating scenarios and traditions of the Paisa culture and our team definitely looks forward to welcoming your family and friends in the near future.

After approximately 8-hour of a fantastic journey through history of colonization in Medellín, your private driver/guide takes you back to your hotel or any other location you feel like.
