Where is this beautifully coloured street?
Its in Salento, Colombia
It’s known for its coffee estates and verdant scenery.
East is Cocora Valley where lofty wax palm trees, a national symbol, are home to rare parrots. The town is a gateway to the snow-capped peaks of Los Nevados National Natural Park, to the northeast. In Salento, Calle Real has colorful buildings and craft shops. El Mirador is a viewpoint just northeast of town.
Tourists love Salento for its “back in the day” original charm and the peacefulness that seems to come with it. This relaxed vibe is not often found in Colombia and therefore Colombians love to visit Salento as tourists themselves!
Salento is a really colorful town with many of the historic buildings painted in bright colors. Salento is gorgeous and makes for some great photo opportunities.
The main drag is Calle Real, which is full of artesanías (local craft stalls) and restaurants. At the end of the street are stairs leading up to Alto de la Cruz, a hill topped with a cross. From here you’ll see the verdant Valle de Cocora and the mountains that surround it. If the skies are clear (usually only early in the morning), you can spot the snowcapped tops of the volcanoes on the horizon.
