Begin your Santa Fé de Antioquia tour with hotel pick-up in Medellín and transfer 1.5 hours across the breathtaking Antioquian countyside.
Upon your arrival to Santa Fé explore the historic main square founded in 1541! With your expert guide, stroll past the plaza’s fountain and street ventors, and make your way along cobblestone streets to the Juan de Corral Museum.
The Juan de Corral Museum is located in a stunning colonial-era home and includes seven rooms each dedicated to an era in Antioquia’s history: Prehistory, Pre-Colombian, Spanish Conquest, Colonialism, Independence, and the Republic.
From the museum, explore several of Santa Fé de Antioquia’s spectacular churches, then head to lunch at a local restaurant. En route, marvel at the whitewashed facades, hardwood balconies, and large double doors of meticulously preserved Colonial structures.
In the afternoon, hop back in the car for a short drive to the Bridge of the West, an expansive suspension bridge built over 108 years, and — at the time of its completion — the seventh longest on Earth. This massive structure is a surprising and spectacular site rising from the surrounding wilderness, and provides breathtaking views of the Cauca River and surrounding forests below.
From the Bridge to the West, hit the road for your return trip to Medellín.
