Description

Our Expert Guides will take you on a breathtaking tour of the town of Jardín, just 134 km from Medellin.

This town gets its name from its abundant water and lush vegetation, giving it the appearance of a giant garden. During our tour, we'll visit a Gothic style church, made entirely of carved stones. This church has two towers, and occupies an area of ​​1680 square meters. This striking church has bells that were manufactured in Germany, interior lighting consisting of 900 light bulbs, and a main door standing a staggering 5 meters tall.

We will continue our tour visiting the park known as "El Libertador", which was declared a national monument in 1985. The park was built on rocks and stones, and today is covered by beautiful natural landscapes. Here, you will be able to find the perfect balance of traditional architecture, flowery paths, and a close relationship with nature.

Next, we will head towards the Cultural Museum of "Cesar Rojas Pelaez Moses". This museum, located in the city center, is divided into two separate parts. On one side, traditional construction and a prototype of the Antioquian people is presented, while on the other side, the house is transformed into a modern building that houses an impressive library.

Afterwards, as an inevitable destination, we will visit the city's candy factory where you will learn all about the candy making process, using recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation for years. Here you can taste different sweets, made with unmatched quality.

Finally we'll visit "La Garrucha," a cable car full of history and tradition. We'll climb to the top of the hill where you'll have one of the best views of Jardín. For lunch, we'll visit "La Truchera" where you can catch your own rainbow trout.

Join us for a tour full of history, culture and, of course, a lot of excitement!
