  • It is the West Bridge, an architectural gem from Antioquia, Colombia and the world, made in wood and steel was the first bridge built over the Cauca River to the passage from the West Antioquia to Medellin city, very good site to learn about our history and have a beautiful tourist experience. Good plan family and groups.

  • Great feat of engineering considering age of bridge. There's a couple of places for photos and you can drive across. Incorporate a visit here with a drive around this area.  more »

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. For a more budget-friendly option, consider staying at one of the campgrounds located in the surrounding rural areas: the solid selection of choices lets you take advantage of the region's natural charms.
