Supía

Supía is a small town with a pleasant plaza, just a half hour from Riosucio. It’s part of the UNESCO World Heritage listed Coffee Cultural Landscape of Colombia.

 

Getting There

Marisol and I visited Supía on a quick trip from Riosucio. We caught one of the frequent minibuses leaving Riosucio for Supía and a half hour later were dropped off a half block from the plaza.

 

Plaza

The plaza is gorgeous. It’s filled with tall trees and benches. In the center is a monument to Simón Bolívar that also indicates the founding date of the town, 1540.

The church is right on the plaza and is nice to visit.

The plaza had a lively atmosphere on the Sunday afternoon we visited. There were a couple of outdoor beer gardens located in front of the church playing music. Many of the residents were sitting outside having a drink and we decided to join them.

The Rest of Town

Outside of the plaza, there aren’t any points of interest. As mentioned, it makes a nice little side trip if visiting Riosucio, but otherwise there’s no reason to stop there. The minibus from Riosucio is COP$3,000 per person one way.
