  • The entrance is free, is located in a high site which allows you to have a beautiful view of the city. It is small and make you travel guide by which you do not pay. It is worth going to know something of the city's history and recreate the view with beautiful landscapes. Not to be missed. When you leave there you can go without buying wafers or a delicious coffee (there are all shapes and combinations) in the jeep parked outside of the place (in the parking area).

  • How nice are the visuals offered by the sector of Cyprus, the monument is somewhat quaint considering the year of its completion (1997-2002) admission is free and is open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Is recomuenda ask for whom the Guide gives explanation of the monument.

  • 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.
