Medellin is the second largest city in the country, with 3 million inhabitants. Visitors to the city will discover that it is much better than their doubtful reputation in many places! The days of drug warfare are over, today Medellin presents itself with a skyline of apartment skyscrapers and office towers as a modern city. Medellin owes its nickname to the pleasant climate: city of eternal spring.
Medellin is located in a narrow valley where jagged mountain peaks jut into the sky in all directions. The city has interesting museums, pretty parks and a remarkable botanical garden. Famous is Medellins nightlife, with many excellent restaurants and bars. You can hardly miss the footsteps of Pablo Escobar: his luxury residence, his offices, the place where he was shot and his grave.
