#1 of 8 in Things to do in Santa Fe de Antioquia
The region's oldest settlement, Centro Historico Santa Fe de Antioquia retains the character and feel of a centuries old Colombian pueblo. Whitewash houses line the narrow cobblestone streets as you head towards the main plaza, the social center of the town. See the Puente de Occidente, a suspension bridge over the Cauca River and one of the longest in South America. Expect to feel the heat a bit more here as the town sits in a valley between the Cauca and the Tonuzco River. Head here from Medellin via the Tunel de Occidente, the largest tunnel in South America, making for a quick and easy day trip getaway. You can plan Santa Fe de Antioquia trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Where to stay in Santa Fe de Antioquia

The scenic town of Santa Fe de Antioquia offers atmospheric and characterful lodgings in colonial-era buildings dotted throughout the historic center, the whole thing representing a protected national monument because of its well-preserved architecture. Prices vary according to the views available from rooms and the facilities present on site; do expect higher prices, a result of demand and the cost of upkeep on the old buildings.
