Pueblito Paisa

The geographical limitations of so many people living in a narrow valley have forced residents to live in overcrowded conditions, with many homes running up 45-degree slopes. Within the city centre itself there’s a huge shortage of open recreational spaces. An exception is Pueblito Paisa, a replica of a typical Antioquian village that’s situated atop Cerro Nutibara, a hilly outcrop downtown that offers fabulous panoramic views of the city. At the bottom of the hill is the Parque de las Esculturas, a sculpture park where the imagination of South American artists takes on abstract form. The closest metro station is Industriales, from where it’s a ten-minute walk up Cerro Nutibara.
