  • We were here on Sunday morning. On 10 minutes you have seen everything, 2 statues and a church. the Centre of Armenia has no charm

  • This is the center of the city which doesn’t appear to be very proud of itself. Don’t bother to come here or to the square. Wish I had’t visited.  more »
  • Definitely have the opportunity of visiting Quindio and enjoy the coffee landscape from the heights is priceless. If you are deciding with whom you will fly I recommend closed eye to adventurous Quindio a company legally constituted, with all permissions on the day and with the best drivers in the region. Pilots participating in the national and international championships which gives them an additional experience. So I encourage you to fly!
