Manizales — 4 nights

A major center of education and commerce, Manizales also serves as one of the hubs of coffee production in Colombia.
Visit Basílica Inmaculada Concepción and Basilica Menor de Nuestra Senora de las Victorias for their historical value. Discover out-of-the-way places like Basílica menor de la Inmaculada Concepción and Our Lady of the Rosary. Change things up with these side-trips from Manizales: Hacienda Guayabal (in Chinchina), Monumento al Machete (in Santa Rosa de Cabal) and Pereira (Victoria CC & Parque Regional Natural Ucumari). There's still lots to do: head outdoors with Torre Panoramica de Chipre, see where the action happens at Estadio Palogrande, relax in the rural setting at Cafe Tio Conejo, and make a trip to Edificio Gobernacion de Caldas, Manizales.
