Full description
The word Paisa refers to a regional subculture in Colombia and is commonly associated with the smaller, rural towns of Antioquia, the state surrounding Medellín. On this tour, you will discover the real meaning of Paisa. This traditional Colombian culture still exists, and each small town is unique in its own way, boasting a speciality that is waiting to be discovered. El Retiro is known for its beautiful plazas, and talent in woodworking. We will stroll around the town, learn about the traditional Paisa culture, and admire the quaint streets. El Carmen de Viboral centers on ceramics and its community is full of masters in this craft. We’ll have the chance to enter a workshop where you can watch experts creating and meticulously painting their work, after which we will have the chance to purchase some of these masterpieces. San Antonio de Pereira’s claim to fame is its local desserts, which are ideal for those with a sweet tooth, and who want to sweeten up this full-day tour.
