The small pies in the coffee shop are a bit expensive but really tasty. Take the guided tour if you speak Spanish! The garden is beautiful and the building is filled with interesting (mostly European) culture, collected by the equally interesting former owners. Take a...More

A visit to this combination gardens and museum was well worth the trip. Located on a hillside on the southern outskirts of Medellin, the gardens overlook the suburb of Poblado. There is a French classical design garden, a picnic area, a cafeteria, an art school...More

I did this because it wasn't too far from the hostel I was staying at, and I'd seen most of the other sights in Medellín. If you're short on time, skip this. If you've seen castles in Europe, then this castle won't seem like anything...More
