    This place has the charm of those constructions in which one thinks more than twice whether to climb or not. The stone has a staircase that looks like a tie cord for those period dresses. It is nestled in the middle of the Guatapé dam. The stone is one hour from Medellin.

    A beautiful rock in a land that was flooded to form a great tourist attraction and exciting rock climbing emblem of the city an exciting tour that from the top you can see the large amounts of water or you can also take a boat ride and say that when the waters are low you can see the dome of the church in the center of the lake is very nice and a very traditional and charismatic town excellent for fun and romanticism I recommend them.
