Santafé de Antioquia

Ideally positioned as an escape for a day trip or longer from Medellín, Santa Fe is the polished version of a Colombian colonial town. Brilliantly white Spanish mansions line beautifully restored cobblestone streets interrupted only by tranquil plazas and austere churches. Santa Fe is an excellent place to enjoy a horseback ride out into the countryside or to reconnect with colonial architecture after the modernity of  Medellín.
