Jerico is a perfect and authentic off the beaten path colonial town. There are many impressive churches and colorful facades. Colombians love to get there for Semana Santa and other religious reasons, but you won’t meet many foreigners.
Jerico is nestled on the top of a hill and offers some fantastic viewpoints. Take a jeep to visit hidden coffee farms or hike to Parque de Los Nubes to enjoy the show.
Also, take your time. Don’t rush. Order a cup of coffee and sit in the main square. It’s the best way to appreciate a Colombian Colonial town.
It’s only 3h away from Medellin.
