A great tour, rich in history and the hike up the rock (690 steps) is a must do/ bucket list kind of thing.

Go! Climb the Rock! It's an unforgettable experience and no where near as daunting as it appears. Then catch taxi into the village and tour the square and have lunch at one of the many restaurants or street stands surrounding it.

Absolute must see when in Medellin. Very important to climb to the top of the Penol Rock to see the wonderful panoramic views and the vibrant colors of the water and greenery.
