Bogotá is that the former capital of Colombia, actually you’ll compare it with big cities like the big apple, port or city, so it’s easy to seek out all reasonably typical national and international food offers.
When it involves speaking about Colombian foods and drinks one of highly appreciated (but not the sole one) is that the traditional ¨Ajiaco Bogotano¨, which is a super yummy fulfilling chicken and potato stew and a meal dead one.
Ajiaco may be a thick stew, made with three styles of native potatoes, whole corn on the cob, chicken, cream or milk, a native herb called guascas, and capers to chop the richness. Avocados and rice are served on the side (as is that the chicken, quite often) so you’ll add and customize the soup to suit your taste. Served within the traditional black clay soup dish, nestled in either a basket or wooden base
–One of your favorite things about visiting Colombia will be the food. It’s amazing here! So fresh, so stuffed with flavor, and then representative of history and culture.
More typicals in Colombia: ¨Bistec a Caballo¨ – Bogota´s region, ¨Sobrebarriga en Salsa¨ o al horno – central Andes area, ¨Bandeja Paisa¨ – Coffe Zone and Medellín, ¨Pargo Rojo Frito¨ – Caribbean and pacific region.

Museum of Antioquia. 

Founded in 1881, its rooms show more than 5,000 pieces from all periods of history and a variety of temporary and itinerant exhibitions of national and international artists.

El Pueblito Paisa (The Paisa Village). 

The Pueblito Paisa was built in 1976 as a representation of a typical town from Antioquia at the beginning of the 20th century, where you can visit the chapel, the barber shop, the town hall, the priest´s house, the school, the tobacco shop and the pharmacy, among other characteristic elements of the previous century. It is located at the top of Cerro Nutibara, in Medellin, and is composed of about 10 structures including the chapel, the school, the mayor‘s office, the cural house, the tobacconist, the barber shop, the pharmacy, a two-story house and a craft house.

The houses were built with materials, doors and windows of houses of the old El Peñol town that were to be demolished to make way for El Peñol Dam. 

This gave the Pueblito Paisa a touch of realism by the use of materials from the colonial era. The baptismal font comes from Sonsón and dates back more than 100 years. The desks of the school and the bed of the cural house are from the XIX and XX century, as well as the chairs of the barber shop, the paintings and the kitchen implements. In these constructions you can find typical handicraft shops of Antioquia.
In 1930 the municipality modified the name to Cerro Nutibara in tribute to the most powerful of the chieftains, Cacique Nutibara. Since then, the society of urban improvements SMP tried designing a public park to make Cerro Nutibara a tourist attraction and distinctive symbol of the city. In 1975, on the occasion of the tercentenary of the city of Medellín, the Territorial Credit Institute, the Sena, and the Central Mortgage Bank came together financing the construction of avillage with all the traditional characteristics.

The project was led by the architect Julián Sierra Mejía, who started works in 1976. Later, private companies like Coltejer, Compañía Colombiana de Tabaco, Compañía Nacional de Chocolates, Noel, Suramericana an insurance company refinanced the project. Pintuco donated paint.
