RELIGIOUS/HISTORICAL TOUR

Due to their historical and socially important value to the city, Medellin is home to several places of national patrimony. These places will amaze you with their stunning architecture that is filled with history. Medellin City Services® stops at The Old Railroad of Antioquia Building, Coltejer Building, Carré Building, Veracruz Church, San Pedro museum cemetery, and Saint Ignacious of Loyola Church among others. Fall in love with the originality, aesthetics and authenticity that characterize Medellin.

Once our bilingual driver has met you at the hotel or the location you have suggested Medellin City Services® for pick up, tour heads north on a customized journey by car with AC just minutes away. First stop takes place at government center where the first important buildings were built. Feel free to stop anytime and use bathrooms or purchase extra drinks while you make yourself comfortable and take pictures or ask questions to the guide. There are convenient facilities where to grab snacks at any time so is recommended to bring cash or Colombian pesos since not every store takes credit or debit cards.

As your Medellin City Services® guide leaves this area narrating the history of our founders, tour gets deep into downtown for a look at San Ignacious chapel and its majestic architecture which is now cultural heritage of the country. Continue to the oldest cathedral in Medellin which took almost 40 years for completion, a great way to understand the early days of the city. After having discovered this fascinating gem of architecture, tour heads to the marvelous San Pedro cemetery museum, another great piece of heritage that holds mausoleums for the wealthiest families in the city including former presidents, writers, and celebrities.

It has already been a pleasure to show you the historic and religious heritage of Medellin and our Medellin City Services® team definitely looks forward to welcoming your family and friends in the near future so feel free to ask your guide for info and special deals as you are headed back. After approximately 3 hours of a fantastic journey, you should be already familiar with Medellin and how it was built as your private driver/guide takes you back to your hotel or any other location you feel like.
