Pueblito Paisa; Celebrates 30 Years!
El Pueblito Paisa in Medellin
The renovation of Pueblito Paisa has been recently completed and the new Mayor of Medellin, Alfonso Salazar, decided to mark the 30th Anniversary of Pueblito Paisa by dedicating the last weekend of March with festivities about town.
If you're in town on Sunday, make sure to visit Pueblito Paisa sometime this weekend to enjoy the festivites.
About Pueblito Paisa: This replica of a typical Paisa village us situated on top of the Cerro Nutibarra mountain.
It give a travelers to Colombia a good idea what the typical villages of Antioquia resemble; with its colourful houses, a local church, courtyards and patios, small shops and a fountain in the middle of the village.
There are many small souvenir shops where visitors can purchase gifts made by local craftsman. Stop in at one of several open air cafes where one can sit down and relax for a moment before heading back down the hill. This is definitely a great place to visit during the day.
Also, great photo opportunities.
The panoramic views of Medellin down below are amazing.
