Santa Fe de Antioquia, Colombia, is an appealing and well-preserved colonial town in the Cauca River valley, about 37 mi/60 km north of Medellin. It was the colonial capital of the province of Antioquia and retains the flavor of the period with well-preserved architecture and a beautiful cobbled plaza. To bring some early Antioquian and Colombian history to life, spend time simply strolling the streets, by both day and night. Santa Fe is graced by several lovely churches, including the Catedral de la Inmaculada Concepcion, on the main square.
A unique treat is to ride in a moto-loco (a three-wheel open-air taxi) to the Puente de Occidente. Crossing the Cauca River, this is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the world. Built in 1887, this remarkable wooden structure hangs between twin towers at each end.
