Antioquia - Colombia | Land of the Eternal Spring

Antioquia is one of the most progresive and important Departments in the country of Colombia. It packs a broad variety of diversity and scenery.
Most of the picks are mine and other colimbian forumers .



I will start the trip through the Southern region of Antioquia considered to be the coffee region of the department ( my favorite region).
I will start with the town of la Pintada and its surrounding scenery.


This is a broad perspective of the whole southern region, this area is located in a low altitude area so the climate is quite humid and warm. Lovely scenery thou.
Here the peak you see is called los farallones, and the river is the Cauca river.
