One of the most impressive views that I saw during my travels in Colombia, was the imposing sight of El Peñol — a huge monolith located 86 kilometres northeast of Medellin. When I first saw this huge rock popping out of this fairy tale landscape, it took my breath away. It looks like something out of “Lord of the Rings”. If you’re planning to travel around Medellín in Colombia, you should not miss visiting El Peñol!
Have you been to el Peñol? How did you like it? Which other sites would you recommend for visiting around Medellín? Leave a comment, I’d love to know!
