Opened in March of 1978, Pueblito Paisa is a replica built to look like a typical Antioquia town. It is positioned on top of Nutibara Mountain which is surrounded by the city of Medellin. The direct translation into English is ‘little town,’ and that’s precisely what it is. The ‘town’ is only made up of a few buildings, but all are made to feature the unique and colorful Antioquia style. The main features include the central square with a fountain, church, rectory, barbershop, and schoolhouse. While the town may be small the views are quite expansive. Several viewpoints around the area offer a 360 degree view of the city and surrounding mountainside.
