What you'll do

With the mountainous city at your fingertips, your day in transformed Medellín can go your way, like exploring the dynamic heart of the city in barrio Centro, home to a bucket list of landmarks like art hub Botero Plaza and a nearby cultural gem with breathtaking views of the bustling city. Next, visit the magnificent artificial forest Parque de las Luces, or see the largest church in the city and a historic museum to return to. Spend lunch digging into traditional steaming Bandeja Paisa at a hotspot with Colombian flair, before basking in the beauty of the 14-hectare Botanical Garden. See where you can catch an outdoor movie with Paisas before heading to the former dumping site Moravia that’s blossomed into a lively barrio lined with resilient street art.

Where you’ll go

Navigate the City of Eternal Spring along streets once overshadowed by violence, in the heart of the city, to a famous fountain-filled plaza, before darting away from the crowds to the Palace of Culture and its mesmerizing views. Next, hop past 300 illuminated pillars to the seat-of-an-archbishop Metropolitan Cathedral, built with over one million bricks, before darting to traditional eatery Hacienda Junin to try a traditional lunch. Wander away from the city bustle under the wooden wonderland of fluttering butterflies in the Botanical Garden, and Parque de Los Deseos that turns into a movie theatre under the stars at night. Space-for-change barrio Moravia awaits, where streets are lined with politically powerful street art and children playing fúttbol.

    • Spend a day exploring a fascinating city that's become a symbol of hope and resistance in Colombia and across the world.
    • Spot over one million bricks at the city’s largest cathedral.
    • Meet friendly locals in a barrio that was once a dumping site, surrounded by renewable innovation.
