SANTA FE DE ANTIOQUIA COLOMBIA


VISUAL SPLENDOR ABOUNDS IN COLOMBIA'S SANTA FE DE ANTIOQUIA



Santa Fe de Antioquia is a world heritage city, if there ever was one.  

Locals, many coming in for ranch supplies, far outnumber tourists on weekdays.

The best way to get to Santa Fe is via buseta from the North Bus Terminal in Medellin.

The ride itself, with passengers loading fruits and other wares on the bus top, is a colorful journey past fincas, green mountains, rural beauty and picturesque roadside markets.
