Father of Quindio
Founded in 1842, the town of Salento represents the oldest established settlement in Quindio. Having fallen off the map somewhat after the diverting of regional trade routes, Salento developed at a different pace, and in a different style than other settlements in the region. This specific history has given rise to the main attraction in Salento--its buildings. The architecture here stands out for its age and preservation, and sits by the side of dusty, atmospheric streets. Surviving largely on coffee production and trout farming, the town has a laid-back atmosphere and individualism that you'll notice the minute you arrive. Be sure to supplement your Salento sightseeing with some visits to the local eateries: order the trout and plantain, and you'll be glad this place is set in its ways.
