Colonial townsMedellin & Antioquia

Jerico is an authentic colonial village off the beaten track. Known in Colombia for being home to a large number of churches, the village is also very colorful and pleasant. Colombians like to go there for Holy Week and other religious holidays, but you won’t come across many foreign tourists.

Jerico is built on a hillside and offers fantastic views of the valley and the surrounding mountains.



Climb aboard a jeep to visit a coffee farm, discover hidden waterfalls, watch birds, or admire the canyon of the Rio Cauca from a farm in the clouds. You can also stretch your legs in the “Parque de Los Nubes” and enjoy nature at your own pace.

Don’t rush, take your time to enjoy the atmosphere. Order a coffee on the terrace in the main square and observe the dynamics of the village and the lifestyle of its inhabitants.
