I like to start the day with typical Antioquian Breakfast arepa, kind of yellow corn cake, accompanied by caletao red beans mixed with onions, tomatoes, spices white rice and chorizo. After breakfast, its nice to head east where the rural scenery is beautiful and tranquility. There are many settings for walks and picnics. One of my favorites is the La Fe reservoir. There´s also Los Salados Ecological Park and Hacienda Fizebad, a 200 year old hacienda with museum about the culture and history of the Antioquian people. Nearby are pictures of local towns such as La ceja, El Retiro, and Carmen de Viboral, where you can buy arts and crafts in wood and leather, as well as porcelain and ceramic items.
In the Afternoon, I like to go to the museum of Antoquia, which was founded in 1881. The permanent exhibition includes prehispanic, colonial and republican art, Antioquian art from the 20th century, contemporary Colombian art, a history of photography in Antioquia, and a number of paintings and sculptures by local maestro Fernando Botero. After looking at those, it’s nice to visit the Cafe Botero, where they serve a wide variety of coffees and you can sample some of the local pastries
My favorite way to end the day in Medellin is to visit the area around Parque Lleras, the nightlife center of the city. There are local and international restaurants such as El Herbario (fine fusion cusine) or Basilica (modern lounge style dinning) a host of bars including the Escocia Pub (a scottish style pub with soft rock and wide selections of beers), and you can dance the rest of the night away to Latin rhythms at Folia Club
Medellin is located in the region of the Andes Mountains in the northeast of Colombia. The city of the eternal spring This city is known for its culture, beauty and views. Moreover, Medellín has culture, nightlife, exquisite gastronomy and plenty of touristic places to visit.
