Medellin Colombia off the beaten track - Parque El Salado. This beautiful serene park is in a quiet area just outside of the city. Wonderful walking paths and places to stop along the river and even make your own traditional soup!
Las Lajas Cathedral was built in 1916 inside the canyon of the Guaitara river where, according to local legend, the Virgin Mary appeared. You can find it in southern Colombian Department of NariÃ±o, municipality of Ipiales, near the border with Ecuador.
