Cerro Nutibara, Medellin

4.1
Hike, take the bus, or grab a taxi to the top of Cerro Nutibara, where you'll find several cultural attractions in addition to the lush nature around you. One of the city's so-called "guardian hills," the summit rises 80 m (262 ft) above the rest of town. Pay a visit to the replica "Pueblito Paisa" (a representation of a traditional village), or stop by the city museum. Afterwards, you can wander the sculpture park, which features works by a number of South American artists. Don't miss the viewing platform near the village, which offers sweeping views across most of the city and landscape below.

  • It is a place that it comes to Medellín should visit. It is a hill in the middle of the city with a nice view on this. In addition there is a replica of a typical village in Antioquia. Lacks a bit of order.

  • The nutibara Hill is 5 min approx walking industrial metro station. It is a great place to do exercise. From the top you can see all over town, in pueblito paisa.

  • A great location to see the entire city, go for a hike and learn about the Paisa culture... All in one beautiful hill located in the middle of the city
  • Amazing graffiti murals. Don't forget to head up and into the park to see more amazing graffiti.
  • The Pueblito Paisa is very nice. There is a 360 degrees view of the city from the top. Food and souvenirs are not expensive
  • Best view of the city from inside. Also a great stair climb to the top (optional).
  • A have-to-go in Medellín if you want to understand the so called "Paisa" culture.
