This is an enigmatic rock nobody knows where came from and there are all sorts of speculations about its origin. Although it looks challenging, you’ll get how rewarding it’ll be to climb its 700 stairs, after having one of the most breathtaking views Colombia may offer. Once all of you have made it downstairs, you will get back in the car to drive through El Peñol town and then make it to Guatapé.

By this time, you will go to a local restaurant to have a marvelous traditional lunch. The dam was created after flooding the old Peñol town. Now it is responsible of generating energy for millions of people. You will visit it on a boat tour after lunch and will visit one of the only houses that remain after the flooding, at this place you will have a big chunk of history behind the town and superstition. Once back in town, you will head back to Medellín, this might be a 2 to 3-hour ride depending on traffic. Our day will finish once the driver takes you back to your hotel.
