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.
