  • Upload to the flying almost all weekends in the company of my four-legged friends, it is just great, there are several routes up, upstairs there is piuestos of fruits and juice, in addition there is a bypass around the Hill, and drinking fountains available for both dogs like humans. People always go up with their pets, as a couple or with children, and everything above is very harmonic, there is secure parking for those who climb in particular car

  • Here is the best viewpoint of Medellin and the best way to know it is by bicycle. Without a doubt, the Cerro El Volador is a place to explore and enjoy because it's one of the green lungs of the city.

  • It is the only Hill of the city where you can see to Medellin in all directions. You can go hiking, bicycling, in the end, plan you will feel breathing better air and enjoy the panoramic view of the Valley of Aburrá. It has kiosks of various foods and fruits so that you take enough after a short but good rise the Hill.
