El Jardín, often simply referred to as Jardín, is a town and municipality in the southwest region of Antioquia, Colombia. It is bounded by the Andes, Jericó, and Támesis municipalities to the north and the Caldas department to the south. The municipality is located between the San Juan river, which is called Docató (meaning "River stones") by the natives, and a branch of the Western Cordillera. Jardín is identified by its preserved colonial architecture, lush vegetation, and abundant rivers and streams.Among others, rivers that flow through Jardin include the San Juan, Claro, and Dojurgo. Trout that is caught in the local rivers is a popular dish in the area.The national anthem of the town is "Hymn to Jardín". Mean daily temperatures are 19°C with moderate humidity.ToponymyRegarding the name "Garden" that belongs to this town, legend says that when the founders came to the Alto de las Flores, from the sietecueros village, they saw the valley that is today Jardín. At the time, it was entirely a jungle, full of white snakewood and crossed by two riachuelos. On seeing the beauty of the area, the settlers began to call it a garden.HistoryThe earliest evidence of human settlement in the area comes from graves that probably belonged to Katíos, indigenous people, specifically of the Chamíes ethnicity. These people were also known as "Docatoes", after the nearby Docató river.With the Inspirock custom trip planner, Jardin and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.
