Medellín image

Founded in 1616 by Spanish conqueror Francisco Herrera y Campuzano, Medellín is Colombia’s second-largest and arguably most progressive city, renowned for its numerous plazas and colourful parks. A city made infamous by the exploits of Pablo Escobar, Medellín has left the dark days well behind and invested hugely in redevelopment and making the city a centre of culture. The region is known for its flowers and the annual Feria de las Flores (Festival of Flowers), celebrated in the first week of August, is particularly impressive.
