  • The Church is huge but is in a region uneasy. There are many beggars on the square in front and prostitutes on the streets in broad daylight of panties and BRA. But there are a lot of cops. Recommend going during the day.

  • The Cathedral is beautiful and its architecture is a monument to admire. However the place is very unsafe and one of the hotbeds of prostitution and drug abuse in the city.

  • The Metropolitan Basilica Cathedral is one of the national monuments of Colombia. Flame attention its solid brick structure, inside you can see it has three naves. It is a landmark of the city, not only in the religious part, also on the architectural.

  • 麥德林不能算是旅遊城市,這是缺點,同樣也是優點。非常喜歡它的城市輕軌與高架纜車,這種纜車居然是交通工具,不是為旅遊或滑雪。2000或4000票價(1美金換2740),包括輕軌與纜車。上麵還有一段更遠的纜車到一個森林公園要單獨買票,4600單程。纜車下麵就是所謂的貧民區,不過不怎麽貧窮的樣子,叫平民區更切合實際。 在九三年之前,世界上最恐怖的黑社會組織是哥倫比亞的麥德林毒品集團
  • Beautiful cathedral, very well preserved, with old, beautiful décor, beautiful stained glass windows, works of art and sculptures of the Catholic religion. An excellent site to visit in Medellin! Considered the city's heritage.
