  • Very active place during the day...was nice to see and feel Colombian life in this little city. People were friendly all around and we enjoyed walking and taking sun.  more »
  • As in all the municipalities of Colombia, the plaza de Bolívar is a forced, with the particularity that it has a beautiful Cathedral and monument to effort, the work developed by master Arenas. It also integrates a pedestrian area that adjoins the Sucre Park. It is good to walk and enjoy a varied cuisine and you can shop at stores in the sector.

  • It's a regular plaza. Nice, in one of the more active parts of the city.
  • Center of Armenia great shopping
  • The corner Café Plazuela Café offers red to 400 pesos when you buy it and take seat sitting voucher $500, I think uncomfortable because if they charge $500 from the beginning there is no problem is good coffee
