Overview
Step back in time, visiting the historic centre of Santa Fe de Antioquia, founded in 1541 by Jorge Robledo. Walk through cobblestoned streets admiring the neo-classical and baroque architecture, visit hotel Mariscal Robledo, the main square, Metropolitan Cathedral, see various monuments dedicated to those who made history in Colombia, Santa Barbara Church, and the museum of the Dictator Juan del Corral. Walk leisurely over the Western Suspension Bridge, where the history and this remarkable engineering feat will be explained to you. A memorable lunch at a colonial restaurant.

Too long spent at/on "The Bridge". A view would have been enough. Lunch was (I suppose) ok but coffee was disappointing. Driver was good but more time could have been spent on the town.

Thanks for your feedback, points noted, kindly note we were deliberately careful to walk at your pace due to walking difficulties that one of your party had - and left only when it was suggested by him due to pain. Agreed coffee was disappointing where we took you to Cafe Canelo which is still rated as #1 (on Tripadvisor) of dessert and coffee in Santa Fe de Antioquia :-((. We look forward to having you back here on your next trip so that Ecotours Colombia can further customise your requirements to your full satisfaction.
