Piedra Del Penol, Guatape

#1 of 13 in Nature in Antioquia Department
Must see · Geologic Formation · Nature / Park
Hulking over Laguna de Guatape like a mammoth, Piedra Del Penol offers incredible views and a cultural experience rolled into one. The massive, free-standing rock formed millions of years ago makes such a dramatic impact on the scenery that it was worshipped as a god by the indigenous communities. Climb 200 m (656 ft) up the dizzying spiral staircase carved into the back of the rock to enjoy what some Colombians describe as "the best view in the world." Remember your visit with a souvenir, sold by the stalls on top of the rock. PutPiedra Del Penol into our Guatape road trip website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
