  • What really caught my attention in its architecture, is that most appears to have been built with lego blocks for some smart child. The night becomes totally impressive and imperialistic.

  • The Cathedral is extremely cute, with much to learn, one of the oldest in Latin America, the problem is that it is located in a not so well preserved Central, it would be good to invest you slightly more to the security of the area

  • The world's largest church in style (the red brick vista), in addition to huge and beautiful stands on a square where life happens and you can meet the real Medellin
