  • When I approached I thought it was a madness that had a tower of cable on the main track, looks very impressive closely although it is not as high. But what really impressed me is the story having: allowed to transport cargo from Manizales to Ladybug. Today the road is from the difficult to the country by its curves and you can spend up to 4 hours, but in the last century the coffee inhabitants managed very good. It is a symbol of the effort and push the coffee people! At night they light up and looks very nice
