Welcome To Medellin
Bienvenido! Welcome to the InterContinental Medellin - 'the City of Eternal Spring.' We are here to receive you with warm hospitality, to offer you the best service, and to attend your every need. My concierge team and I are delighted to have you as our guests.
AN OASIS IN THE ETERNAL SPRING CITY The InterContinental Medellin overlooks the entire city from its lush location in "El Poblado". Medellin is known as the city of "Eternal Spring" because of its location in a valley surrounded by mountains, but our best features are "Los Paisas", its warm and friendly people. Our hotel features a variety of restaurants, wish gardens, a spa and swimming pool.
Metropolitan Cathedral More than 55 years, between 1875 and 1930, and the intervention of French architect Carlos Carré, were needed to complete this imposing structure. In all its grandeur, the Cathedral flanks centrally-located Bolívar Square to the north. It is said that it is the larg-est church in the world built in its entirety out of bricks, 1,120,000 of them to be exact. The Romanesque church holds important and much admired architectural features and works of art, including its stained glass windows, the altar canopy, its pulpit, and the marble holy water fonts, among many others. Its Walker organ is already considered a collector’s item. Another piece, not to be missed, and greatly admired by visitors, is The Forgiving Christ, by artist Francisco Antonio Cano, hung over the Holy Host Altar.
Florida Shopping Mall A referent for fun, shopping, and relaxation in the northwest sector of the city. A great natural park, home to 204 stores, restaurants, and serv-ice-dedicated businesses, as well as seven movie theaters, a supermarket, and department stores.
The Street Of Fine Dinning This well-known area of the city, located in the El Poblado neighborhood, centers its attractions on its restaurants, discotheques, and bars, all with intense non-stop day and night activity. The innovative designs of the storefronts, in themselves, is an attraction. The easy access to Calle 10 (10th Street) and Lleras Square from any corner of the city has made this a vital point of reference in Medellín.
