  • Located in Cyprus, which is one of the most popular in the city. Has a view incredible on the city though when there is fog is difficult see the city. A curiosity is that the monument is unfinished waiting for funds to be completed. As its name suggests the monument is dedicated to the Antioquian colonists who founded the city.

  • In Manizales, in the Cyprus area, is one of the most emblematic and beautiful treasures of the Manizalenos. It is a tourist place par excellence, it tells the story of colonization from the wooden bridge and the fantastic work of the artist from Manizales Luis Guillermo Vallejo, which was erected as a tribute to the founders of the city. Admission is free and you can enjoy a clean, thin and exquisite air along with a luxury 360 view. I very often, it is a delicious encounter with the history and the environment.
