El Peñol rises 200 meters (656 feet) from the surrounding plains and is visible for miles around the countryside. The majestic surroundings of the Embalse Peñol-Guatapé, one of the country's largest lakes, were created in part by the construction of a hydroelectric dam that provides 30% of Colombia’s electricity supply.
