If you’re visiting Medellín on business, take a day off for a trip to Santa Fe de Antioquia, one of the oldest settlements in the area, dating back to 1541. Just two hours from Medellín, it has retained its colonial charm and boasts a central square with churches and vendors offering locally grown spices and interesting crafts. Explore the narrow streets for local art and excellent leather goods. Or, if you’re into coffee, you might prefer a daytrip to the surrounding countryside to visit and taste real Colombian coffee at its origin. Take some home for a tasty memory of your visit and for client gifts. Both daytrips offer spectacular scenery around the curving roads up and over the mountains that surround Medellín.
