    I liked it but some may feel it is a 'tourist trap'.
    I really liked this. Some may feel it is a 'tourist trap'. This is basically a replica of a traditional Antioquia town. I loved the colours of the buildings, the views and and the atmosphere. Also, a great place to purchase quality handicrafts or souvenirs. There are a few eateries as well and street vendors. Just take an uber. Maybe a 10 minute ride if you are staying in El Poblado.

    Nice place!
    It was a amazing experience. The view at the city was very nice and you can see the city. The site offers good foods and the museum was very interesting. The place is clean and well cared for, it is comfortable and you can buy different memories.

    Not impressed
    It’s a cute place but there isn’t much to do asides from the view (which you can get from other points of the city) and the food. I spent a couple of hours on my own and wasn’t impressed. Wouldn’t say it’s a must, but you can check it out if you have the time and wanna buy souvenirs

    Nice enough but wouldn't make a special visit
    Nice to visit as part of a city tour but wouldn't go out of my way. Cute and pretty but small and very touristy. Situated in a nice green area. Views of the city rather obscured by trees

    Unimpressive tourist trap
    It's a tiny, staged "neighborhood" for tourists. If you're nearby, it might stop for 10 minutes to snap a few pics, but only if you have time on your hands, and go early in the morning before all the tours. It's not worth going out of your way for, nor buying a tour at any price. It's a row of a few brightly painted buildings. The rest of the area contains souvenir shops and food/ drink stands. You can walk down the hill on the backside of the Pueblo on a meh walking trail through the trees with meh Modern art sculptures along the trail. The trail leads down to a highway. Nothing of interest is nearby. Wear repellant if you decide to walk the trail. If you want to see a pretty little town, take an Uber or the metro about 25 minutes south to Envigado or an Uber or metro north to Bello. The churches in both places are beautiful. For a cobblestone small town experience with a fantastic hilltop hike with a view, I recommend Concepción, though it is more difficult to reach - a 2hr drive or a 3hr bus ride in each direction. You will not find an Uber or taxi willing to drive the steep mountainous roads.

    nice views of the city from here
    it's a nice place to spend a bit of time (not too much). The setting is beautiful with some great overlooks of the city. It was a little strange to me (but I guess I need to think about the name) that there are so many competing little restaurants that seem to have pretty much the same menu. I was glad to have found a chicken salad offered at the restaurant in the center of this area. It was a nice break.

Such a cute little town, people are so friendly and the food is good, the little shops don’t over charge.
The entertainment was funny, the trovadores are funny and are so quick at thinking. ❤️

A small oasis far from the noice and pollution of downtown Medellin. It’s quite small and I used just 30 minutes there to take some pictures of the colourful houses. There is a nice walk down through the forest.
