Full description
Only 45 kilometers from the city of Medellín, take part in an unforgettable trip to one of the Heritage Villages of Colombia, Santa Fe de Antioquia, considered the cradle of the paisa race.

Stroll through its cobbled streets, its historical wealth and its eight churches as you step back in time to the colonial era of the city, once the capital of the department of Antioquia. Enjoy a cable car ride between the mountains of the Cordillera, in the town of San Sebastián de Palmitas, a transportation system that allows the movement of a person with more agility.

The Santa Fe de Antioquia Tour is a tour that must be done as it is a bridge and a place with a lot of history .... a very colonial and beautiful town with several very important churches and parks ... the guide that we He attended is a very charismatic, attentive and friendly person, we loved the tour but he helped a lot to make this time more pleasant.

Enjoyable day trip to Santa Fe de Antioquia.

If you are visiting Medellin, you should certainly consider a side trip to Santa Fe. It's a beautiful town in which to see what life is like outside the big city. I enjoyed the walk across the Puente de Occidente bridge where I took some amazing photos of the scenery. In the town of Santa Fe, the tour stopped for lunch at a nice restaurant where food was served buffet style. The walk around the town's main plaza was charming, and was another opportunity for photos. The tour ended at another town square where local vendors sold fruit, handcrafts, and snacks. Just a few things to note: Santa Fe can get quite hot, so dress appropriately. Also, use sunscreen. Bring an umbrella...it's good for rain or to shade yourself from the intense sun at the bridge. This tour is 100% in Spanish, so if you don't have some fluency in the language, you may want to book a tour in your language. Finally, be ready to depart Medellin by 7 am, even though the listing gives an 8 am departure time.
