El Peñon de Guatapé is a 200m high inselberg that overlooks eastern Antioquia, where a man-made lake spreads its waters like jade capillaries throughout the surrounding hills.  A corset stitch of stairs leads you zig-zagging up to the top and its panoramic feast.  In contrast, the nearby hamlet of Guatapé is more intimate and contained.  Its streets bloom with a bouquet of colorful buildings, each painted in its own funky palette.
