Holiday Travel Guide
Pueblito Paisa showing religious elements and a church or cathedral

Visit this replica of an early 20th-century town to experience old-world Colombia and to get amazing views of Medellín.

Pueblito Paisa is a charming replica of a 1900s village in the Colombian state of Antioquia. The town’s size, makeup and atmosphere are meant to recreate the feel of a small town at the beginning of the 20th century. The town is centred around a church, which sits on the main plaza. Walking around Pueblito Paisa feels like travelling back to a simpler time. While visitors are immersed in the town’s old-world atmosphere, Pueblito Paisa’s location also offers spectacular views of both Medellín and the surrounding mountains. The name Pueblito Paisa means Little Antioquian Town and residents of Antioquian are often called Paisa.

In the heart of the town is the quaint white church. The sizeable wooden door is flanked on either side by painted crucifixes. Admire the small garden and clergyman’s house that sit next to the church. Sit by the pleasant fountain in the centre of the cobblestone square. Wander through the variety of stalls, where merchants sell jewellery, clothing and souvenirs. Little shops painted green and white line the lovely plaza. Try traditional cuisine, such as fried beans and chicken, in one of several restaurants in the town. Pueblito Paisa’s most famous local dish is Bandeja Paisa (Antioquia Platter), which is made of black pudding, fried egg, plantains, pork rinds and ground meat.

To see a spectacular vista, head over to the lookout. This platform offers a splendid panorama from which you can see the entire city of Medellín. Bring binoculars to spot several of Medellín’s landmarks, like the wealthy Poblado district. When the sun sets, the sky is awash in colour. This area is the perfect place to get a photo of the beautiful scenery surrounding Medellín.

Pueblito Paisa was built in 1978. The site is free to visit, though there is a small fee for parking.

The town is situated atop Nutibara Hill. A couple blocks to the east of Pueblito Paisa is the Medellín River. To get to the area, take the subway to the Exposiciones stop.
