  • It is a place with good view to see the city of Manizales, the history of the monument and its meaning is inspiring and then you can walk through Cyprus and watch a beautiful sunset

  • The monument of the Antioquian colonists in Caldas lands is a sample of the rooting of culture paisa in our region. The work is an abstraction of the vicissitudes that passed these farmers mostly provinientes of Sonson, Antioquia who, exasperated by the afugias of poverty and scarcity of the time had to emigrate to the South seeking new economic opportunities. This work by the local sculptor Guillermo Vallejo shows the stages of this colonization, from the difficulties of the non-existent roads of the time until the creation of the city that today is located on this mountain ridge. a site that is worth knowing, which unfortunately runs without a guide (to improve appearance) and is free (to maintain appearance).

  • Monument is life really made, but here and there to restoration. Read the signs so that you know what is depicted. The hard ride of the farmers what to here pulled from Medellin, the triumph of the arrival. Definitely worth it
