Pueblito Paisa, Medellin

3.7
#1 of 13 in Historic Sites in Medellin
Experience the charm of a typical Paisa region town at Pueblito Paisa, perched at the top of a hill overlooking Medellin. The replica village takes you back in time to the late 19th century and allows you to experience what life was like in the so-called "Coffee Triangle." Built in part using scraps of buildings demolished to make way for a power plant, including church doors and school furniture, the town was opened for public in 1978. Grab a typical Colombian meal at one of the model town's restaurants, and enjoy spectacular views over the city while you wander through the quaint streets. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Medellin holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Pueblito Paisa and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • No interest for me. Mini restored village, no charm. Offers a nice view of Medellín, however. It is better to go to guatape to see a real typical village.

  • A perfect model of a paisa village of yesteryear. House, Church, plaza, shops... And you can enjoy it using public trabnsporte or tourist services turisbus in Medellín (leaves the town park and allows you to know several landmarks and this spectacular vantage point to the current city and the Pueblito Paisa of our grandparents.

  • Great view of the beautiful city of Medellin. Pueblito Paisa a quaint attraction at an elevation that gives you a full 360-degree view of Medellin. We found it to be a relaxing place to spend 60-90 minutes. There are a large number of snack and souvenirs vendors to choose from, and we found the prices to be reasonable. Not a lot to do here once you arrive, but the view makes the trip worthwhile.
  • An amazing little spot, and well worth the walk up the hillside. Amazing views, a decent museum giving details of the city's history, and a good food court are all reasons to make the trip. However the main attraction is undoubtedly the little town atop the hill; it's gorgeous!!
  • It is a very rustic creation of a town in Antioquia. Many things to buy, variety of foods. Several monuments, a museum and a viewpoint with a beautiful view of the city
  • Pretty place. Crowded and full of little stands selling Chinese basura with Colombia written on it, but great views. Worth the short trip.
  • Very nice view of the city. There was a nice old photography exposure at the museum. The pueblito is a nice small town, you will find all kind of souvenirs here too.
