City of the Swallows

The capital of the Department of Cordoba, Monteria benefits from an eclectic cultural heritage, with indigenous peoples, African descendants, colonial Spanish descendants, and Arab immigrants among the populace of 1 million. On the banks of the Sinu river, many of Monteria's attractions use the river as their focal point, with landmark architecture, scenic parks, and music venues all close to the water on the eastern side. A tour of Monteria reveals the local pride in its relaxed and welcoming vibe, best witnessed in the colorful and vibrant downtown area, where walking paths take you through historic and commercial centers.
