If you've been to Salento, don't waste your time. This is a very small replica of a traditional Colombian town but mostly filled with souvenir vendor carts and some sweets. There is one portion up a staircase when you get a great view of the city, but this is certainly a one hour (at most) visit. Depending on the day,... More

From the platform, you'll have almost 360° views of the city. There's also an interesting museum about the city, especially the development in the past decades and plans for the future, including lots of photos, which is worth the visit. Entry is inexpensive (around 2000 or 3000 COP, including a postcard ;) ) Also, check out the art sculptures. Kerri... More

It's absolutely and totally fake, and if you've been to well preserved colonial towns like Salento, you won't see nothing you already haven't and better. but is still worth the visit, to escape the heat and the smog of the center. The City's museum is worth the ticket (every cheap).

This place is only for turist. If you really want to see a real pueblito paisa get out of the city to the little pueblos and enjoy the real pueblo paisa. This is only a turist trap where they sell all kind of stuff. Not impress.

This is a popular attraction in Medellin. There is a plaza set up to appear like old times with a small typical church and tiny little stores selling crafts and gifts. The stores are each a little different and it is interesting to visit. There is a decent sized row of restaurants one level down some steps apart from the... More

You'll see birds, flowers, trees... More

Its called "El Pueblito Paisa" because its a replica of our old towns located in the mountains. It has the Church in the middle, with its souvenir stores, restaurants, make believe hospital, make believe schools etc. and its located at the top of El Cerro Nutibara. You get there by car.

It is definitely one of the things you should do when visiting Medellin. Because of the view when you get at the top, but also for the walk to get there. It feels like you are outside the city. The path is zigzaging up the hill and through modern work of art. Very nice "expedition" (it takes maximum 15 minutes... More
