Pueblito is a reconstruction in the middle of Medellin on top of a nice wooded hill of a village in the country that had to make way for a reservoir. The wood used in the construction of the buildings was saved from buildings of said village. The lookout deck offers great views of Medellin and provides a nice backdrop for... More

This is supposed to be a replica of a traditional antioquian village. There is even a small church with a kitty! There is a nice park where people were flying kites one afternoon. It is a nice place to visit take a stroll, buy a souvenir and have an ice-cream!

There are reviews of this attraction listed under Little City (El Pueblito) and Cerro Nutibara which refer to the same place, the correct name being Pueblito Paisa, Cerro Nutibara being the hill on which it stands. The Lonely Planet guide description is "a kitschy miniature version of a typical Antioquian township" which I cannot better. It is just a few... More

If you go to Medellin, you should go to Pueblito Paisa. It's a nice recreated town over a mountain. Pros: Nice recreated town Great for taking pictures Nice high point of view of Medellin Cons: There's not to much to do there Very expensive if you want to eat or drink something, also there are not to many options

Very beautiful, very cosy and very tasty. The taxi is a must unless you want some hardcore uphill steep-step. ALso it will be very difficult to walk downhill with stuffed stomach, as you sure will be after the dinner in one of the uphill restaurants.

Waste of time. BUT i give 2 points for one of the best views of the city!! Don´t go there if you expect a cute little colonial town.

I had fond memories from a prior visit but this visit I was terribly disappointed. The wost part was the restaurant there, The food was horrible and the service poor. The only nice thing was the view of the city.

We were on a tour which included this place. What a let down. Don't waste your time as there really is nothing to do or see.

You'll find El Pueblito on top of Montecerro, a little mountain in the middle of Medellin. From the top, you can see all of the sprawling city. But Medellin isn't particularly pretty, so the view isn't all that great. Besides that, the place has some touristy restaurants and stalls selling souvenirs. Go if you have some time to kill, but...

Within a 10 minute cab ride of the city center, this is worthwhile to catch a bite, enjoy a nice view of the city and feel the cool breeze
