Monumento a Los Colonizadores

Top choice monument in Manizales

Located atop a hill in the neighborhood of Chipre, this massive monument to the city's founders was crafted from 50 tonnes of bronze (including keys and other implements donated by local residents). It's a very impressive work, but an even bigger attraction is the spectacular view over town and to PNN Los Nevados. Catch a bus marked 'Chipre' along Carrera 23 to get here.
