The Catederal Basilica de la Inmaculada Concepción in Santa Fe
Santa Fe de Antioquía Is a small historic town around an hour by bus from Medellin. It is known for its colonial architecture and its historic bridge just outside of town.
The main plaza is surrounded by restaurants and cafés, and in the center of the plaza there's a small market.

Santa Fe de Antioquía was my last excursion before leaving South America from Medellin.
Before leaving I also made a stop in San Antonio de Pereira to enjoy a final Paisa caliente before heading to the airport.
