Photo Essay: Partial Tour of Antioquia

by Sammy Quezada

During this holiday break I had the opportunity to visit several cities in the department of Antioquia. Medellín served as the launching point to Jardín and Jericó, both of which are in southwest Antioquia. From there, I traveled North to Santa Fe de Antioquia, which was an early colonial city, the original Capital of Antioquia.

The following are some pictures of this trip.
