Top UNESCO Sites in Colombia
The Coffee Region
The coffee cultural landscape in Colombia is a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its sustainable and productive landscape and its clear representation of Colombian culture. Situated on the western slopes of the Andes, there are three main cities for coffee growing, Manizales, Pereira, and Armenia. Their proximity is why the Colombian locals named the region, “the coffee triangle.”
Each city has its charm, with typical coffee haciendas in the outskirts of the metropolitan areas. Some say you can even taste the difference in the coffee, depending on what city you visit. Venture to a nearby coffee farm and learn from expert guides as they explain how coffee beans are cultivated, dried, and transformed into world-famous Colombian coffee.
Historic Centre of Santa Cruz de Mompox
For travelers interested in culture, Mompox is a must-see destination. Founded in 1540, Mompox might be one of the best-preserved Spanish cities in northern Colombia. The city played a significant role in Spanish colonization and today, the historic buildings stand well preserved and are used for their original purposes.
Transport back in time and visit the city’s three main plazas of 16th-century Spanish architecture. Stroll along the cobblestone streets and marvel at the detail-oriented buildings and structures. The combination of the urban landscape and the harmony of the past makes Mompox a charming destination, destined to captivate any visitor who ventures off the beaten path.
The Walled City of Cartagena
The walled city of Cartagena is one of the most popular vacation destinations in Colombia. The historic center was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO due to its impressive fortresses, churches, and buildings dating back to the 16th century. And its prime location along the Atlantic Ocean attracts a frequent number of international travelers. A Cartagena tour is for guests interested in culture, as well as couples searching for a romantic getaway, as Cartagena is a special place for Honeymooners. The Cartagena airport has direct flights from and to the United States and Europe, and excellent connections to domestic locations.
San Agustin Archaeological Park
Nestled between lush green hills and the Magdalena River lies San Agustin. San Agustin is home to the Archaeological Park of San Agustin, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995 for its pre-Colombian treasures. This large outdoor exhibit is perfect for travelers that have an interest in mythical beasts and ancient legends. Statues adorn the elaborate tombs. The park is well-put-together, offering you a scenic, historical walk through its trails. Expect to spend about three hours here and learn all about indigenous history.
Besides visiting the Archaeological Park of San Agustin, travelers enjoy horseback riding, dining at the local restaurants, gorging on delicious pastries, and exploring the surrounding areas. Horseback riding, in particular, has become popular amongst many due to its ability to give tourists easy access to all parts of the park.
